Murals and Devastation down on Second Street
Here's an article about the Latina goddess mural down on Second and Thomas Streets. It's one of today's photos, thanks to Raine Walker. The mural narrowly escaped being part of the Second Street devastation, by about 25 feet or so.
Today's other photo is the gaping hole left behind by the now-complete leveling of the north side of the 200 block of W. Second Street. Ugggh, reminds me of dental surgery. Thanks to Richard for documenting this very sad chapter in the Pomona decision making process. I am trying my best to be on board with this new project, but I can't ignore this sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach.
Is anyone keeping a running tally of all the small businesses put out on the street by either the City of Pomona or the school district? Given that our only health club and only movie theater were among them, I'm thinking the overall list might be quite long.
