This blog is mainly about the going-ons of the L.E.S (Lower East Side), and some interesting shots around the city.
This site pays homage to Bob Arihood and his now discontinued blog:
Neither More Nor Less
May it stay up there for years to come.

A street sculpture show curated by Royce Bannon and Cassius Fouler with the Woodward Gallery Featuring sculptures by John Ahearn Michael Alan Richard Hambleton Stikman NohJColey Miguel Ovalle Leon A Reid IV Skewville UFO 907 Gabriel Spector Robert Janz
From the Streets Up July 6 - July 31, 2013
From the Street Up is a selection of celebrated urban artists who
concentrate their creativity without walls. For centuries, humans leave
tracks, symbols, and objects to record their location, time, and
experience. It is an ancient form of documentation.
Gallery invited Artists Royce Bannon and Cassius Fouler to co-curate the
exhibition. Each of the featured Artists are noted for their Public or
Street art: John Ahearn, Michael Alan, Richard Hambleton, Robert Janz,
NohJColey, Miguel Ovalle, Leon Reid IV, Skewville, Gabriel Specter,
Stikman, and UFO.
Since most people walk while looking down,
urban artists can capture this line of vision by carefully selecting the
location for their street sculpture to exist. The principals of
concentration, curation and location help define the essence of the
project. Removing the vulnerable factor by isolating the work indoors,
permits us to finally experience the full theory behind the art–the
creative focus of defying gravity. The exhibition walls are bare as the
work is presented from the street up.
