Photo by myself in Alphabet City, around 6th Street and Avenue A.
A large mural was going up in Alphabet City announcing a new comedy show with actor John Reilly. Below, some large illustration dedicated to the motorcyclists who frequent this area.
I walked by the crane later when it was closer to the ground. The workers were on their lunch break. I noticed they paint the murals the old fashioned way, working from a small copy of the image.
In the close up photo, you can see the framed image held by one of the artists. Pretty incredible!
