The Sign of the White Rabbit, on Houston Street

145 East Houston, NYC
Photo by myself on East Houston and Eldridge Streets.

A large piece of graffiti art graced the roll down security door of the White Rabbit, a bar on East Houston Street.

Here's the power of the internet - I had forgotten where I'd taken this photo a few weeks ago. All the information I had were the number '145' and the cryptic symbol on the canopy, which resembled a rabbit.

I did a google search for "145 rabbit nyc" and up came the website for the bar called the White Rabbit. Bingo, the logos matched!

Happy Monday, everyone!

I dreamed with your pics until today - and I taked notes too!
and now, the day after tomorrow I'll stay in New York:
I'm so excited!!!
I'll stay at home of cuban friend living at Bronx, it's a good start, no?
I would like you recommend me something to see/do/eat/ - just one thing : )
I have my list, and you helped me to do it, but I know that the trips then go where they want, off the map : )
ciao!

Thanks Olivier!
Yes, I like how much movement there is in this mural. The artist obviously labored over it without the work losing sponaneity

Thanks and welcome Scatti!

Hi Emanuela!
I don't have much to offer you in terms of the Bronx, but I will certainly send you a list of suggestions in town. You are good to come during holiday time. The city will be done up in a festive way.

Thank you and welcome, Gateglimt!

These two women play nicely off each other. Each is interesting alone, but together? Wow.
