We love art. We love to travel to go see new art. We may have even taken a last minute red eye flight from ORD to PHL to check out the Barnes Foundation before it moved from its original location into the city. As art lovers, there is no place on earth that can equal the diversity of artistic expression that New York has cultivated. One of the most interesting art scenes happening in New York is rarely found in galleries-- it's street art. These are some of our favorite places to see some of the best street art in the world

Bushwick, Brooklyn

It's hard to pinpoint this wall-- it changes so often and so quickly but that is part of the excitement in street art. For the last 30+ years artists have been tagging this wall and its earned the nickname the "Graffiti Wall of Fame".
