ABC's above Rivington Street, the Lower East Side

on the lower east side
Photo by myself at Rivington and Clinton Streets, on the Lower East Side.

I usually avoid taking street photos that have cars in them, but this well-tagged facade was too arty to pass up. As you can see, it's a little rough around the edges in some parts of the Lower East Side.

Just to the right, at 158 Rivington Street, is the Rivington Club, an exclusive sneaker store that sells the cream of the crop in Nikes or Adidas gear. The entrance to the store is a rather inconspicuous door.

For more about the Rivington Club, see the NY Magazine write-up, here.

What a mess the graffiti taggers have made.
You made a good choice to leave the car in your photo.
