Resident’s Corner:

  • From Richard Boodman, CEO of the LB DOMS: “Committee beginning project renewal.Former famous LB artist and occasional fashion designer ( Herald July 2003) Ron La Bear is volunteering his creative genius. This is just the primer.” [This is in front of healing Oasis. If you see the artist, tell him Seabythecity sent ya.]
  • This next photo was sent in by a resident, who said, “this could explain some flooding issues on Park Avenue.” She took this photo near Baskin Robins.
