I decided yesterday that I wanted to start a blog where I could talk about and display photos of the changes happening on MLK Jr Boulevard in Portland, particularly the stretch of blocks from Broadway to Dekum Streets. By coincidence, HandsOnPortland organized a cleanup on MLK today, called Spiffin’ Up Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. I missed the cleanup itself, though I did wander by one of MLK’s too-numerous empty lots on Fargo and MLK the west side of the street), where the Spiffin’ Up afterparty was taking place. There was a jam band, which was singing about “G Funk- got to get your Gandhi Funk,” as well as some tents and a bbq set up, and a half-dozen or so spectators.
