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.

I learned so much about the importance of music, art and religion in the African American community. It is important to address that the gospel is NOT A PERFORMANCE, so if you don't have religious beliefs you should observe from a learning experience and be respectful (like I did). I highly recommend.
