... This woman is a classic immigrant domestic violence case. Alone, abused, pregnant non-stop for over three years, not too much English. According to AP, she doesn't even have a telephone number in her name. She needs help: medical, legal, psychological, spiritual. I'm hoping that a womens group, domestic violence or Haitian Community group comes together and helps this woman and her children. Sad thing about it? Being locked up in a Kings County jail is probably the safest she's been in years.
Lynn has another blogger. Some of these blogs have been mentioned right here on Universal Hub, helping to put Lynn back on the map as a place to be. (Um. Yes. Lynn was once hopping mad with activity that wasn't all sin.) Downtown, in particular, is on the rise and full of potential, even in this current real estate market.

Corey, a newcomer to downtown Lynn, is now blogging about the neighborhood:

Via Landed in Swampscott.
Pho Lynn, the Vietnamese restaurant on Munroe St. Across from the Munroe St. Lofts has the BEST Vietnamese food I have ever tasted. ...
Lynn Lofts, the Skinny is a new blog aimed at people thinking about moving into a condo in the neighborhood - specifically, the Keith Building, where the author lives. He does not much care for the building's developer - and explains why you should be careful about moving into a unit too close to the commuter-rail tracks.
Smeg witnesses a weird accident in Lynn on his way home:
... The Jeep turned his wheel *a little*, then floored it, he had no way enough turn to make the corner, and he drove straight into the front of the Mustang, which roled back from the force.
