Different Kinda Art Stroll: Freeman Alley, NYC

Freeman Alley is a little …well alley  in the Lower East Side

you almost walk by and miss it. In 1909 people would line up in a so called “bread line” through the alley in the hope to receive some food from the Bowery Mission.

In a more and more polished looking part of the city …it is a refreshing to find some wheat pastes and graffiti – Lot’s of layers

At the end of the alley you find a restaurant -but I was more into the fire escapes !

Definitely have to come back and see what’s new when I am in the East Village next time. You find it off Rivington Street – don’t miss it ;)

“If not now, then when? If not me, then who?”

I stumbled over this inspiring TED-Talk by Mick Ebeling. He built an amazing team to make it possible for the from head to toe paralyzed graffiti artist TEMPT1 to draw again.

Amazing ! Mick Ebeling founded Not Impossible Labs, a nonprofit that develops creative solutions to real-world problems.

    Wow. Just wonderful and the fact that they did not make money from it is stunning.
    It was done for the love of the man and his art.
