Late last week Charm City Streets had the pleasure of touring New York’s Astoria neighborhood and capturing images of the artwork created in early June during the 2018 Welling Court Mural Project.
I have fond memories from my college years of staying in hostels while traveling throughout Germany and Switzerland. They provided a spartan, inexpensive way to see Europe. Inexpensive being the key deciding factor during that time period of my life.
For years on end, graffiti and murals can hold their own against Mother Nature’s onslaught of cold, heat, and precipitation. On the other hand, weather can quickly wreak devastation on wheatpastes, slaps, and stickers.
Recently, my grandchildren were in town for a visit. They live in Seattle so I do not get to see them as often enough as I would like, so over the past three+ weeks I placed pretty much everything on the back burner. Now that they are back home I have completed processing the rest of the images I captured during the two weeks I spent last month in Brooklyn and Williamsburg.
