Floral Mural – Edgewater

Instagram favorite Second City Mom found beauty in an intriguing, already-colorful place -- the Vietnamese pocket of Edgewater -- and snapped it. This mural is simple, sweet and will be an especially bright spot in the cold winter months.

Located on Broadway St. and Argyle St. in Edgewater.
