East Harlem


The 100 Gates Project has expanded north within Manhattan to East Harlem, one of the borough’s most diverse and vibrant neighborhoods where we are working with the local community, merchants and artist to add sanctioned street art on security gates; adding just another layer onto the already thriving and vibrant public art landscape in East Harlem.
