Old Lady DUMBO

Detailed street art paint-up in DUMBO, Brooklyn, of an old lady right next to Pedro’s Mexican restaurant on York Street. The lady depicted in this image has an “ethnic” look reminiscent of images of immigrants to New York as seen in archival footage from the early part of the 20th century. But the woman’s appearance is ambiguous enough that she could be perceived as from any one of a number of different cultures and and countries: Is she Eastern European, Latin American, Middle Eastern, Greek, Tunisian, Portuguese, Moroccan, Italian? Maybe, quite possibly, she’s American.
