Rich's Lower East Side Art Walk was a highlight of my recent trip to NYC. As an artist himself, Rich is very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject. Before taking the tour, I knew nothing about street art and I found his tour to be...More
Rich is a fantastic tour guide. He knows his street art and his Brooklyn history. I didn't realize how much history we would be learning as we walked past tags, throwies, and "pieces" in Gowanus. And...a sweet wheat-paste piece by Swoon! Yes, I learned these...More
Rich's Lower East Side walk was amazing. Rich gives a very informative and in-depth review of New York's sprawling street art, giving different perspectives and background on how and why the different pieces are there. Seeing as NYC is such a mecca for art, seeing...More
