JR’s Giant Eye in Brooklyn

Here’s another one of those massive “eye” wheat-paste street art pieces by the French artist JR. This one is on the side of a lofts apartment building next to the Williamsburg Bridge, in the Willamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. The placement of the artwork near the busy bridge ensures that a lot of people will see the eye, including the millions of passengers annually who ride the J/Z subway trains that pass over the bridge every few minutes. There’s a lot of new work by JR in New York City recently.

What’s Outside the Window – Vol. 26

The view from a second-floor loft space at the corner of Prince Street and Broadway in SoHo, New York City. The massive loft is is home to one of several floors occupied by a private Equinox fitness club. In this picture, at right, you can see the black storefront flag of the Armani Exchange shop that occupies the ground floor of the cast-iron loft building. Across the street on the right is the building occupied at ground- and basement-level by the Prada store, which was designed noted Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas. In the distance is Prince Street as it runs westward.
