Found Art, in Midtown

Service Elevator, Midtown
Photo by myself, somewhere in Midtown.

For every building with a public elevator, there at least one service elevator. This one had its doors wide open to the sidewalk.

This service entrance looked like an odd and informal gallery. There was a 'Mona Lisa', a view of the World Trade Towers and a portrait in graphite. At the metal doors of the service elevator, American flags were painted on the panels.

Happy Friday, everyone!

How did Mona get from the Louvre to NYC?

this is the real mona - unpretentious, cool and underground. She's always been like this. The one at Louvre is fake ;)
