This summer Lydia Stein and six local teens painted the "Keep Your Dream Alive" mural on Sanchez Market on Broad Street as part of a five-week Community Works program. Murals feel at home amidst the Latino neighborhood's many hand-painted advertisements — a tropical island painted on the side of Caribbean Liquors at Dartmouth Street, the Dominican heroes and flag painted on the window of Ramaraya Cafeteria Restaurant, the dancing horses on the side of Park Jewelry Boutique. El Bombazo Market has a graffiti-style memorial painted on its side.
