Groovy New Street Signs in the Grove Park Community

The East Charlotte Ninja was out and about recently and noted these very nice street signs added to the tops of the Harris Blvd street signs in the Grove neighborhood.  We think they are great!!  Wouldn’t it be nice if all the different areas could be “tagged” this way?  It truly adds a nice touch!!

If you have a nice addition to your East Charlotte neighborhood that you would like East Charlotte Tweets to share please drop us a line at eastclttweets(at)  We would love to share all that is  positive in the East!

East Charlotte Yard Art

Yard Art Day Project
Yard Art Day 

The East Charlotte Ninja was out and about this past Labor Day Weekend.  I got to see some great displays of beauty created by East Charlotte residents participating in the Yard Art Day 2013. Yard Art Day is an annual grassroots community event created by  Deborah T.  to encourage  local residents to express themselves creatively.  The Yard Art Day project supports all creative spirits within our metro area and provides us with a tremendous opportunity to share our unique view of ART! This type of sharing truly inspires a sense of community and connectedness.

Many thanks to the Eastside residents who took time to develop these great displays and brighten up our community.  I encourage all the residents of the Eastside to consider participating next year. To learn more about how you can join the beautiful fun please visit the website at YARDARTDAY.ORG
