Recent street art work on downtown New York City by Baltimore artist “Nether Bmore,” who visits NYC occasionally to show new work. This wheat-paste artwork appears on the Spring Street side of the always-graffiti-and-street-art-bombed former bank building at 190 Bowery owned and occupied by photographer Jay Maisel and his family.
The number of serious art galleries in the Lower East Side (L.E.S.) continues to grow at an alarming clip. Among the newer art venues to have opened in recent months is the large space (at least, by L.E.S. standards) at 327 Broome Street, home now to the Jack Hanley Gallery and the Nicelle Beauchene Gallery. In the art-and-edgy-fashion-soaked area of the L.E.S. south of Delancey Street, on the fringes of Chinatown, it seems like you can’t throw a stone in any direction without hitting an art gallery. We love it.
This un-bought giant billboard ad-space is on 11th Avenue in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood.(Officially the neighborhood is called Clinton but NOBODY in NYC calls it by that name, nor do people call it Midtown West. It’s Hell’s Kitchen.) The billboard is owned by ad-media company Van Wagner which is advertising the space with their own ad featuring an image of a bee and the simple line “Buzz?”
