Via WNYC - “A Tour of NYC’s Coolest and Oldest Graffiti”:
The Richard Hambleton retrospective at Phillips de Pury & Company is only on view through Tuesday. But there’s still plenty of historic graffiti around town to cast your eye over.
With the help of graffiti aficionada Katherine Lorimer (who snaps shots of street art as Luna Park), WNYC has created a tour of five of the coolest and oldest pieces of graffiti around town. Scroll down to see our picks and check out a map of the spots here.
(Note that this was posted by WNYC a year ago (Sept 2011). I came across it today thx to timehop, b/c I tweeted the link a year ago.)
