The mural at Houston and Bowery
Mural At Houston And Bowery
Originally an immigrant neighborhood, the Lower East Side of Manhattan has rapidly transformed in to an area filled with trendy restaurants, galleries, and new high-end apartments and hotels. During a trip, artists were repainting a mural at a busy intersection. The painterly effect of this image reminds me of the ever changing surroundings of a rich and dynamic city and the anonymity you can have among it millions of residents.
