Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Who knows what the masterminds behind community-building Calle 16 will come up with if/when it snows, but for rain, they're decorating 16th Street from Thomas to Roosevelt streets with flowers.

So if you nabbed a few at Phoestivus last night or spy a few pretty ones in your (or your neighbor's yard), bring them over to Calle 16 and hang out with a few cool mural artists while you're at it.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
