Lafayette Street Girl 1

Lafayette-Street-Girl-1.jpg

Love this. That instance when you experience that mix of surprise and excitement you feel when you see a clever or beautiful piece of street art (or art in general, or anything, for that matter) — that’s what we felt when we saw this wheat-paste of a girl’s face on Lafayette Street in Soho, New York City. (We’ve dubbed her “Lafayette Street Girl.”) Note the the Sharpie marker tag/graf scrawled on her forward. Since we snapped this shot a few days ago, we’ve seen this wheat-paste elsewhere downtown, more precisely, we saw her in the chic Nolita nabe, where apartments and lofts are now very valuable New York real estate.
