We missed them, but several readers shared photos of the National Guard on Larchmont Blvd yesterday.
Larchmont Village resident Devon O’Brien shared some photos she took of members of the National Guard, following the protest at the Mayor’s residence in Windsor Square on Wednesday.
“Locals stopped to chat with them and thank them. To preach peace and treat them to a refreshing Jamba Juice,” wrote O’Brien.
St. Andrews Square resident Patti Carroll shared these photos of protestors leaving the Mayor’s residence in Windsor Square. Protesters gathered Tuesday and Wednesday at the Mayor’s residence, protesting violence again Black Americans. The protests are among hundreds nationally, sparked by the death of George Floyd in the custody of Minneapolis police.
Carroll told us she stopped on Larchmont to take a photo of the National Guard in front of the Rotary Clock on Larchmont, when this group of protesters came walking down Larchmont at First street around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon.
“It was a very friendly protest,” wrote Carroll, who estimated there were a few hundred people involved.
We took a lunch break today and headed over to pick up sandwiches from the Larchmont Village Wine and Cheese Shop. While there, we saw members of the National Guard once again keeping a watchful eye on the street, and noticed a few more shops have elected to board up their windows. Some were still opened, though, despite the plywood window coverings.
And on our way home, we encountered yet another group of protestors heading east on Third Street.
