Boutique Blues?

Color blocking is in process at the new location of Luxes Lighting Boutique between Ciudadela and the PR Museum of Art.

This is across from the big empty lot where the ‘Altos de Cangrejos’ neighborhood used to be located before greed and the housing boom expropriated the entire community for luxury condos that never got built.

The old wooden house next door to this building was just demolished, so while we celebrate the ‘New Santurce’ let’s not forget the history and culture of our neighborhood that was lost in the process.
