Earlier this week, I posted a write up about the street art scene in the East Village and the Lower East Side. I talked about the difference between graffiti (ego driven, inward thinking) and street-art (enhancing the vibrancy of an area, outward thinking), and how street-art has helped those two particular areas evolve into the trendy, hip neighbourhoods they are today. As I learned during my tour, not all street-art is easy to spot, but armed with an open mindset and a curiosity to explore, you’ll start to notice things you hadn’t before and you’ll begin see things in a new way.
Below are more photos from my time in the East Village and Lower East Side, plus two final photos from walking the Highline in Chelsea.
