Luis Cotto, executive director of Egleston Square Main Street, shared this snow free image from all the way back in January (seems like a lifetime ago, doesn't it?). As Cotto writes on the Egleston Square Main Street Facebook page, the Boylston Street Art Walk is "an initiative of our Egleston Coalition members JP New Economy Transition, The Urbano Project and the Egleston Farmers Market as well as the Boston Brewing Company." Each weekday we post an image from around the neighborhood. If you have a photo that screams (or even whispers) "Jamaica Plain," here are four ways to nominate it as our "Photo of the Day":

Do you know a crosswalk in the neighborhood that needs repainting? Here, a couple crosses Seaverns Avenue at Centre Street.

Tell City Hall Which Crosswalks Need Repainting

It's one of the rites of spring — the paint on the neighborhood's crosswalks has suffered from a long, salty winter — and City Hall needs a little help knowing which intersections are in the worst shape. Please email JP's Michael Reiskind with which crosswalks need repainting at In his role with the Public Service Committee of the JP Neighborhood Council, he'll make sure City Hall knows. Painting is generally done in April, so please email him by the end of March. Or just leave a comment below with the intersection that has lost its paint and I'll make sure it reaches him.
