Photo by myself at Ludlow and Stanton Streets, on the Lower East Side.
There is no shortage of movies showing older Italian men in New York, hanging out with each other and cooking.
This mural is a part of an ad campaign by Umbro. Hand-painted murals are located in neighborhoods showing groups of real people wearing the Umbro insignia.
Umbro's New York campaign targets its urban audience, showing real New Yorkers wearing their clothing.
