|Houston and Bowery art mural wall|
Our tour started at the corner of the Bowery and Houston streets, where there is a big art mural.
Some of it was clearly sponsored/commissioned.
We strolled through colorful St. Mark's Place, full of restaurants, shops, tattoo parlors and more. There is a legendary vintage clothing store that sells to the likes of Lady Gaga and a former theater where you can see the handprints of Joan Rivers and Kitty Carlisle.
