A Walking Tour of Boyle Heights

Join MCM volunteer and Boyle Heights resident Erick Huerta (bonus: also an occasional Streetsblog contributor) on a walking tour of Boyle Heights. The tour will feature landmarks along First street such as the Breed Street Shul, Pico-Aliso Housing Projects, various murals, Evergreen Cemetery, and other landmarks that highlight the multiculturalism found in the neighborhood.

The tour will be starting at Self Help Graphics & Art and ending with lunch at El Mercadito. The tour will be approximately 2 miles, so please wear comfortable clothes and shoes. The event will also be a fundraiser for MCM and we will be accepting donations the day of the tour. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

If you have any questions about the event, email us at CommunitiesForMobility@gmail.com
