  1. I can’t believe they painted over this beautiful mural in Boyle Heights. It was always nice to see this art while driving the 101 north, now we get a plain orange wall! What was the owner of this building thinking?? I’m surprised that Huizar didn’t step up and have this mural protected……….well, not all that surprised actually.

  2. that wagon is super cool.
