City Art / Arte de la Ciudad

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

HERE IS SOME of the art I saw around Brooklyn (like the one above) and Manhattan during my recent visit. The art speaks for itself (just listen).

      I couldn’t believe that water tank. And its atop a building on Furman Street which runs parallel to that ugly section of the Brooklyn Queens Expressway below the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Never expected that.

  1. I love urban art, especially the ginormous pieces! And is that a stained glass water tower? I want that one!

    1. Bob:
      Do you believe that water tower?!? I was amazing. Only problem is I don’t think the idea will hold water…

    1. Mistress Maddie:
      I love what street art does for a city. Yeah, I loved that David was inspired to share that mural at the same time that I was collecting photos of my own. Great minds.

  2. So much better than tagging! This inspires me, but nobody wants to see paintings of misshapen stick people on my house, including me. People can be so creative!

    1. Deedles:
      Oh, I don’t know. I think misshapen stick people could be very cool. Imagine owning an original “Deedle.” Well, YOU don’t need to imagine.

      1. Aw, aren’t you sweet! I’ve just now noticed that when you take the “s” off of my name it sounds like some kind of sex act. “I’m going to deedle him until he begs for mercy!” Yeah, I won’t be writing any erotic literature any time soon.

      2. Deedles:
        Oh please. You’ve got kids. Proof you’ve Deedled at least a couple of times! I can’t imagine you writing serious erotic literature. You’d be finding the humor in the positions and making riotous comments about the angles and bad views.

    1. Kirk:
      That was great to see. I usually only see the chalk artists at events when an entire plaza is officially taken over.

  3. Beautiful. I love the guy on the sidewalk though, he is so talented. Also love the fish one 🙂

    1. Cheapchick:
      I loved what the chalk artist was doing. And the boardwalk art was exceptional. That’s a New York Aquarium building.

    1. Parsnip:
      We don’t have much of this in Fuengirola, but Málaga has some great walls (not enough, though). I’ve never been to Tucson.

  4. All cool. I’ve never been more excited than when I saw a Banksy high on a building in San Francisco,
