New York Murales

Murales mark a gang from another. Murales are painted on the walls surrounding the gang's general headquarters. The murales is updated as a gang's member die; headstones are painted as to remember the lost ones. Here you can find pictures taken at the general headquarter, to some bikers and their customized Harley-Davidson as, of corse, at the gang's murales.

In this neighbourhood murales are threatening, the images most of all refer to crack addiction. The crack, being a low price drug, causes a large number of victims, mostly among teenagers. The Bronx is even a place with a large number of Churches and people trust in God.

There's Harlem and Harlem, the white of the rich one and the most frenzied and lively one of the coloured people. Here there are charming markets, you can listen to jazz music in the pub and on Sundays you can enjoy people singing gospel in the Churches. Most of the murales represent famous coloured people. In this page you can even look at an old part of Harlem where, in the past, you had to walk your horses!

In Soho shopping and art are so close together. It is a very elegant quarter, rich of art galleries, and most of the shops here seem like artworks, so well designed. There is no gap between art and shopping. Murales here are used to "leave a sign" on a local or on a dressing brand.
