PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) – The Miracle Mile, a stretch of McDowell road in between Seventh Street and SR 51, was once the premiere shopping destination of Phoenix in the 1940s and 1950s.

Today there are plans to bring back the Mile, and transform McDowell Road into the thriving district it once was.

“It just seemed like it was a fun time,” says Vanissa Young, the now co-owner of Lionetti’s Barber Supply, a business on 16th Street and McDowell Road. She recalls old pictures shown to her from the original owners in the Miracle Mile’s heyday. “She said that it was very booming back then.”
