Another mural is currently being painted over at West End Automotive & Auto Body on W. Beech Street and Vermont Street. As a Star Wars nerd since the very beginning, words cannot describe how happy I am to see this.

‘When the Beach Met The Bay’ can be found at the corner of Maryland Avenue and Beech Street in the West End of Long Beach, NY. When I look at this mural, I see a sunset over the ocean. The name suggests it might be a reference to what the West End experienced during Hurricane Sandy, when the beach did indeed meet the bay. It’s art, so you can interpret it anyway you want. Either way, I love this mural and the exposure Long Beach is getting, as we continue to rebuild, evolve and grow.
