Two very good stories highlighting Historic Preservation in Lake Worth

[This is a blog post from August thought my readers would be interested in reading once again. Enjoy:]

Earlier this week I was contacted by Emily Minor, a freelance writer for The Palm Beach Post. She started off asking about the neighborhood called the "North East Lucerne Historic District." The resulting article appears in today's Post.

As mentioned in the article, I indicated that most people would not recognize the area by that name. It is made up of a combination of Parrot Cove and Mango Groves neighborhood associations. The name actually comes from the designation report for the creation of the City's largest historic district. The district stretches from 2nd Avenue North on the south, the alley along Dixie Hwy. to the west, 13th Avenue North on the north, to the municipal golf course on the east. However, it jogs at 7th Avenue at Federal Hwy on its east side.

Plus, there is a nice feature article on Anton Avilez, who lives in the area and is a Realtor for the Corcoran Group.
