Culture: Street Art - 190 Bowery, New York, Revisited

(Drivebycuriosity) - New York City is a mecca for connoisseurs of street art. Especially in South Manhattan (Lower East Side, Soho, East Village) you could find a lot of murals, graffiti and wheat pastes.

In May I wrote about the house 190 Bowery at the corner of Spring Street and the Bowery (drivebycuriosity). This place is owned by an artist who encourages street artists to display their works on the walls of his building, that has been a German bank in the 19th century.

Therefore the Germania Bank building at 190 Bowery is a place of artistic freedom. And there is a lot of change going on. Old pieces are continuosly covered by new work. It's art in progress.

Since my last post many new art works appeared and some of the old ones have been altered.

To be continued.
