The massive, squat hulk of a building (originally a bank long, long ago and now a private property) at the corner of The Bowery and Spring Street in Nolita / Lower East Side, in downtown New York City, is a kind of open canvas or shrine to street art and graff in much the same way that another building (the famous 11 Spring Street or “Candle” building) at the opposite end of the block at Spring and Elizabeth streets was before it was renovated and turned into multi-million-dollar luxury residences. This image shows the side of the Bowery-Spring building that faces Spring Street. Note the spaces where the windows have been covered and sealed.
