Five things to do today – community mural, KindieComm, fireworks

Brothers Bar, Shimon and Netanel Levy began buying lots on North 6th street in Old Kensington in 2006, creating a market for new construction and building a family business as well. Their latest construction at 1307-09 includes a Mural Arts Program building that they´re trying to preserve with the help of the city. This is the mural on the northern side of the construction site.  ( RON TARVER / Staff Photographer ) May 31 2014
