I especially enjoyed these 2 humorous and sexy stencils above which I found on a house wall at 3rd Street in the East Village.
There are also some nice new murals in the Lower East Side. Below you can see 2 of the ubiquitous skeletar murals by street artist Bradley Theodore that I found on Ludlow Street and on Kenmare Street. My favorite in this collection is Lucky Cheng`s fancy lady above. According to "New York Magazine" Lucky Cheng is a restaurant "better known for its cross-dressing waitstaff than its cuisine" (nymag). I also enjoy seeing the "rat boy" by Brooklyn`s street artist Tino Razo.
There are more stencils of course. Some defy the American puritanism, others are more on the surrealistic side. And Steve Jobs is not forgotten.
The funny street art below I found in the Tompkins Square Park in the East Village.
Let the pictures speak for themselves.
