Description

from Alternative New York Street Art Tour
Come along with us through one of New York City’s oldest neighborhoods and let us bring the art alive. The Lower East Side is well known for its diverse ethnic neighborhoods and astonishing street art. Historically, the Lower East Side is known for hosting immigrants coming off Ellis Island, and in the second half of the 20th century, the area became flooded with artists. The growing counter-culture population in the Lower East Side drew more and more artists. Soon the area quickly exploded with creative expressive graffiti art that illustrated the social and cultural movements that would influence American society in the 21st century.

It was a good experience in Harlem, but the Gospel function was not as expected. Very good tour guides, well organized, but the overall experience was not enthusiastic.

It was a terrible rainy morning but it was warmed by D and D, who gave an enlightened tour of the history of Gospel in Harlem.
