New Series: They’re Talking About Lynn
From downtownlynn.com blogger, Corey Jackson -
I am finding more and more when I tell people I live in Downtown Lynn, they have a special memory of the time they spent down here in their youth. Whether it be at one of the three movie theatres, or one of the many department stores, or simply hanging out on Central Ave or Union Street, they all have a unique memory or two to share. I’m starting a series on downtownlynn.com where I will feature someone’s memory of Downtown Lynn once a week.
My goal is to connect the positives of the past to the possibilities of the present. We can learn a few things from these memories. My goal is not to re-create the Lynn of our past, but to spark dialogue about what a downtown area is (and has always been) about.
If you have a special memory or old photos you would like to share, please send those to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
