The only time I was ever mugged was leaving the Zoological Exchange after purchasing a few Siamese Bettas & supplies. I was 12. The kids that mugged me were about 13 or 14. They were inside the pet shop, and they followed me out. As I made my way under the El to catch the Webster bus to Gun Hill Rd., they rolled me.
I recall visiting the place after it burned down. That was a big news fire story back when it happened. I too, was saddened to think of all the livestock that perished in that event. They sold all sorts of exotic creatures, but their specialty was birds & lizards as I recall. The place was dark & dingy, and always busy!
