I really have a soft spot for the new John Lennon mural in the 500 block of Lackawanna Avenue in downtown Scranton.  This photo was taken just before 10 yesterday morning.

The brother of a dear college friend owns the building.  Students from my alma mater, Marywood, helped.  Plus, it's John Lennon, one of the greatest of his era.

Plus, it's nice to see space dedicated to someone who had a positive influence on society.  It's a refreshing change from another relatively new mural in the city, one dedicated to an unlikeable twit from a stunningly unfunny sitcom.

It's a great use of the space, and with any luck, it will encourage people to visit an overlooked downtown park.
