South Boston paints its empty store fronts

Empty store fronts are a drag on Main Street. They break up the flow of the Main Street commercial district, and studies show that they discourage shoppers from exploring downtown. But, what can be done? Well, how about turning empty store fronts into canvases for local artists? Check out this video to see the artistic creativity now on display in South Boston’s empty storefronts. And, watch the Destination Downtown South Boston website for more information about the fire hydrants painted like local historic figures that was mentioned in the video.
