Green Wall

Living Wall, UES
Photo by myself on the Upper East Side, around 80th Street and Lexington Avenue.

I caught a photo of a living wall, erected as a storefront above a yoga center. Various types of lichen and moss were trained to grow in the crevices of a concrete wall. The entire installation looked like a map.

We've come to the end of another humid and busy week. TGIF!

Off to bed after a long day. We'll be back tomorrow, folks.

I think living walls and roof are so cool!!

That perspective is so unusual you can't tell if the wall is vertical or horizontal. Cool!

no, I couldn't get a feel for this either. It felt horizontal to me, like one of those massive mazes.

Hope you got a good night and have a lovely weekend.

Hi Carolyn!
Yeah, I agree. It feels a little dated at the same time. Reminds me of the 70s

Hi Ken Mac
I was in a cab at the time. Not my favorite photo, but it's different.

Hi RB
Thanks dear. I hope you're having a good weekend, too.

Thanks Tammy
Hope your HB is feeling better!

I think I like it. I would love to see that with the façade of the building. I may make a little détour to take a peek.

That's a beautiful wall! Now I want to have a green wall too, but first I need a wall using rocks so it'll actually have crevices.I've managed to get moss growing on the rocks in my garden. I love moss.
