Tribute to Peaches:  Peter Pagast & Stacy Lewis. 830 W. Indiana Ave, Philadelphia, PA 

"The corner of 9th and Indiana is memorialized by two great wall murals: “Together We Stand”  and “Tribute to Peaches.” Twenty years ago, drug dealers stood on this corner and terrorized the neighborhood. The murals show Chollo and Yamira, two teens killed here, and Peaches Ramos, the block captain who organized neighbors to help the police drive out the drug market. Ramos, who has been instrumental in the safety of the neighborhood since, is block captain and a member of the Historic Fair Hill Board of Trustees."
