There is even more fresh paint in Mazatlán’s Centro Historico than I reported back in March here. Some of the painting is just the usual homeowners painting their houses before the rainy season comes, and some is a joint project between the Coppel Foundation and the City of Mazatlán. I thought I’d show you a few from a very small patch of Centro.
The one at the top had needed a lot of concrete repair, but it looks great now.
This one is unoccupied but doesn’t look too bad inside
The car wash guy is waiting for customers in front of a newly painted beauty.
This one is unoccupied as well… it has been cleaned up inside, though. The peach colored house to the left
is being remodeled inside and also has new exterior paint.
Now I probably wouldn’t have dreamed up that color combination… I guess they are getting their
signage redone, also. This is an air conditioning shop.
This used to be a gym… see the signage? I’m glad they kept the signs, they are pretty funny. To the
left see the little “puesto?” The lady there serves comida economica every day to a large part of
our neighborhood. When I took the picture it was too early for food.
The school even got a new paint job. Unfortunately just last night the brick wall
a little farther down got tagged with graffiti.
I love this one on Angel Flores. And see the new construction their neighbor is building
behind their facade? Looks good!
