Warm weather is everywhere this week, and though this summer certainly wasn’t the hottest in recent memory, it did have some pretty amazing days. Like the one spent lazily strolling around the Lower East Side on a Sunday. This is one of my favorite past times and usually involve some strolling, probably one of the only times either of us can ever be seen strolling, and stopping for brunch. Anyone that knows me or reads Style Island knows that I love my little island of Manhattan. Being born here comes with a sort of inherent hustle, but on a warm, city day, exploring art behind every corner, there’s nothing to worry about it. Life is easy like Sunday morning.
And sometimes, the best parts of New York City aren’t in a museum, or behind glass, they’re right in front of you, tangible, and everywhere you look. Perfect example; these reconstructed pieces of art illustrating a Debbie Harry tribute in the form of some amazing graffiti. I was immediately taken, not just by what I saw, but by the fact that the island really does have the ability to surprise you behind every corner. And that is my kind of town.
