Please join us in welcoming Washington Gateway Main Street's new Director, Andrew Malloy!
Andrew comes to us from our partners at Project Place and helped establish our multi organization street cleaning program. He has lived in the South End for the last four years and is a frequent customer of all the businesses here. "I’ve worked right on Washington Street for four years. I get my groceries at Foodies, my dog food at Petco and my hair cut at Tweeds," says Andrew. "I’m really excited to know more about my community as it’s an area often overlooked by people…It has a rich history and it’s the largest preserved Victorian neighborhood in the country. There’s also the rich history of jazz musicians that came here that I’ve learned about. “I think it’s just a really exciting opportunity because there’s a lot of opportunities to grow the organization and the Main Street, and most especially, the ends of Washington Street that don’t get the attention that other areas do."
Washington Gateway Main Street and Blackstone Franklin Sq. neighborhood Assoc. partnered on installing an art lighting installation in Blackstone Sq. on Washington Street in the South End. Franklin Sq will be installed in early August. This installation keeps the two historic squares safer, brighter and more appealing. The parks are now being used more during the evening hours.
