NYC Street Art and Tour


Happy Tuesday everyone.  What a crazy morning.  I am staying with my friend Sue while in NY and we were up until almost 2am in her craft room.  Me - preparing the kits for the baby mini album I am doing this Saturday and next week.  And Sue - working on some ideas for her Etsy shop.  Today it is rainy and gross so it will be back to Sue's craft room for most of the day.

Just wanted to share some more photos from this weekend's traipse around lower Manhattan.  On Friday night, after the Chinese food at Wo Hop, I noticed lots of cool street art on buildings and told Justin that Sunday would be Little Italy day to get these shots in the daytime.

We took the train down to the new Cortlandt Subway station.  This was one of the stations that was closed for a long time after 9-11.  Found some amazing tiled art on the wall that just mesmerized me.





Then we started to walk towards Little Italy, through Chinatown again.  Saw so much cool street art.  On walls, on light posts.  








After this we stumbled upon a street art festival going on.  Some of the pieces were very cool and the "street art" on the walls just boggle my mind.  







And these photos below are just some cool shots from walking around the streets.  It was nice to be a tourist again for the day and get to experience NYC without the need to rush around.  

I met Batman on the street.

A cool poster on the side of a construction site.

Alley in Chinatown.

Mulberry Street in the heart of Little Italy.

Crazy stuff for sale on Mulberry Street.

Well, I hope you enjoyed these photos and my little day trip through lower Manhattan.  As always, thanks for stopping by the blog.

Hugs from NYC!!

  4. WOW. What an amazing collection of street art. I live here and have never seen a one of them. Perhaps I need to get out more often! Though the art had me awestruck, the t-shirt shop had me laughing out loud! TFS Michael!
