This shot was taken on my last trip into Manhattan. This is the SoHo area, Crosby and Broome Streets.
The architecture in this area is very interesting and many of the buildings are quite old.
The graffiti just makes it all the more interesting, visually. Notice the columns from the older architecture.
I like the blue dumpster as an added accent! Welcome to New York!
Interesting thing is, graffiti is global.
We saw it in Italy, on our recent tour. Venice, Florence and Rome all had their own graffiti covered walls.
Maybe it's just a component of the human condition, an inborn trait. Haven't they found graffiti cave drawings in the ancient caves?
