On Manhattan’s Lower East Side: Above, Cash4, Olek & Werds

February 10, 2012

Long the home to immigrants and working-class folks, Manhattan’s Lower East Side, south of Houston Street, is continually revising itself. Yet, despite the proliferation of modern glass-walled high-risers and seemingly wealthy newcomers, its public spaces and storefronts still remain a canvas for both legal and illegal street art. Here’s a sampling of what we spotted yesterday:
