Are These New York's Most Instagrammable Walls?
Whether you’re seeing it in person or through the window of Instagram, part of New York’s distinct charm is its street art. And perhaps no one appreciates a pretty footpath as much as a street style star. Thus, it should come as no surprise that a few of the coolest examples we’ve spotted on social media are the work of a fashion insider.
As a part of the 100 Gates Project, NY-based designer Tanya Taylor’s work is now front and center on three storefront gates on the Lower East Side. Instead of adorning clothing, her hand-drawn designs are part of an initiative to bring colour and light to the downtown neighbourhood.
While we do consider this a must-see for anyone visiting the Big Apple over the holiday season and looking for a unique Instagram opportunity, the 100 Gates Project goes beyond likes. It’s part of a larger initiative to support female artists.
Scroll down for just a few of the best shots of Taylor’s print-emblazoned walls—street style stars included—and visit the hashtag to help map out your own our trip.
