ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD

Mount Vernon St. has been in desperate need for revitalization after serving as the former “Central Square” hub.

Ironbound Northshore Neighborhood has made Mount Vernon St. become one of the most exciting spots in Lynn to visit.

OUR AUDIENCE:

People from all backgrounds from Lynn as well as the North Shore area will be coming to Lynn just for the block party! They are students, artists, young professionals, activists, community leaders, and prospective patrons that are thrilled to see local businesses engage in building positive environments.
