Your Guide to First Thursday Artwalk

The next-to-last First Thursday Artwalk of the season is here. And it's massive. Here's a map and guide to the festivities, which will draw thousands of people to central JP from 5-9 p.m. Thursday. The basic concept is that businesses all up and down the Centre/South corridor host art exhibits, concerts, food tastings, etc. It's a JP tradition that is organized by Centre/South Main Streets.

For our Photo of the Day on Thursdays, we highlight an image of old JP. The occupants of the storefronts along Centre Street are of course always changing. This undated photo from the Boston Public Library's collection shows how Centre and Seaverns, the block that now contains City Feed and (starting Thursday) Hatched, used to look. At the time this was taken, the JP Branch Library was in temporary lodgings on the second floor. [selfie]
