Street Art in NYC Part 2

New York City View | Red Circle Crafts

I'm back from New York. I keep having to remind J that we left New York for a reason and how much we love Portland. There were so many good things about being back there, but ultimately it's too manic for me. Too much of everything, even all the things I love.

Apparently I spoke too soon about the lack of temporary (also illegal) street art in New York City. I was just hanging out in the wrong places. A trip down to Lower East Side and East Village produced far more than I could capture (at least that my friends were willing to wait for me to photograph).

It's different than the street art I see here in Portland though, which is not surprising. Here I see lots of hand-drawn stickers, paper put up with wheat paste, and spray painted stenciled images (like this one).

Ok. Back to crafty posts again. If this is the sort of thing you're interested in though, I regularly post the street art I see in Portland on my instagram.
