Peterborough Street gets a mural makeover

Six delectable restaurants, and fav lunch spots of us Phoenicians, were burnt to the ground after a fire spread across Peterborough Street this past January. (VIEW a slideshow of the wreckage.) Since then the area has been quite the eye sore. But all that changed this last weekend thanks to the Fenway Community Development Corporation and the students of McKinley Preparatory High School. Here are some of the fantastic murals now in place where the charred buildings once stood.
