Go Home, Banksy: Our Guide To DUMBO Street Art

We here at All That Is Interesting’s headquarters in Brooklyn, NY love to uncover the world’s most amazing, bizarre, and interesting corners and share our findings with you. Sometimes, though, we don’t need to go very far. In fact, our office is located in DUMBO (Down Under The Manhattan Bridge Overpass) – home to some of the borough’s best street art.

Back in 2013, the DUMBO Improvement District, Two Trees Management Co, the New York City Department of Transportation Urban Art Program, and the Jonathan LeVine Gallery invited eight internationally renowned artists to paint eight different murals in an effort to beautify the neighborhood. They’re centered around a four-block radius along the BQE.

We sent All That Is Interesting’s own Chris Altman out on the streets with nothing but the clothes on his back (and photographer Killian Simon) to document these backyard beauties. This is what happened:
