Since the 70s it’s been known as a bustling artists’ enclave that’s home to both up-and-comers as well as more well-established art businesses.But the biggest reason to visit is to take in the fantastic art that can be viewed in galleries, special exhibitions and on the streets themselves. Venture on to experience some of the very best art throughout this unique NYC neighborhood.
