For many, art in New York equates to the world-class museums of MoMa, The Met and the Guggenheim. But, for those willing to venture beyond Manhattan’s famous avenues and into the neighbourhoods where the city’s heart truly beats, a cacophony of colour can be found plastered over many of the urban landscape’s banal surfaces. On the floor, overhead, on doors, walls and stairways, on street signs, on poles. Street art, in all its multifarious forms can be found in every direction – if your eyes are peeled, that is.
