3rd mural begins

The mural is going amazing, thank you everybody who has been working on it in this incredible heat!  The text is nearly finished on the second mural, and we have started the third across Knickerbocker behind the fruit vendor on TMobile.  It will consist of Lorca's ear, the third stanza and a blown up map of PR where so many of the people in Bushwick are from.  The island was too small to fit all of the towns where people are from on the map in the second mural. Boricua! But its definitely amazing to see the diversity of the hood represented in the world map. Las Americas, to Africa, to Europe, to Asia, and Back again.
