Graffiti, Lower East Side

Graffiti, Lower East Side, originally uploaded by Alex Whittaker.

This was part of a much bigger piece of graffiti (or street art if you want) in Freeman Alley on the LES. Check out some of the other pieces on my Flickr.

I don't tend to take many photos of people, especially in the street, and this is actually a detail from a much bigger picture but I really like it.

Beer advert, Lower East Side

I don't believe anyone has actually ever said "Hooray beer!"

Radio store, Lower East Side

I love the details on this building. It's so easy to just wander around New York and you can easily miss places like this.

I've not written anything here for a while so here's a pretty picture instead. I'm kind of thinking of turning this blog into a photo blog about the Lower East Side. As I reckon pictures are better than my ramblings. This place is a few blocks down from my flat, I really love these old style signs that you get everywhere in New York.
