Bloggers love a good wall - usually muted and white, something that let's their outfits pop. Living in New York City, however, the walls are just as vital to a great #OOTD as a designer handbag.
Street art is everywhere in New York City, especially where I live in Brooklyn. When it comes to blogging, setting up your pictures matter – they tell a story. Even if you’re not a blogger, a picture is worth a thousand words, and in this day and age, likes. Whether you’re looking to engage readers with exciting content or just want a stellar picture to show your friends, here are some of New York’s most Instagrammable walls and street art.
New York’s Most Instagrammable Walls and Street Art: Brooklyn
Williamsburg – N 11th Street & Wythe Avenue
I happened to stumble upon this wall while searching for another, but I love how it tries to capture the different vibes Brooklyn offers.
Also on North 11th Street & Wythe Avenue, New York’s most Instagrammable walls and street art don’t just live on walls. It may not be Abbey Road, but it sure was a lot of fun to walk across.
If the future is female we must remember we are the new wave of leaders. Also in Brooklyn, this wall was a great reminder that no one can make you feel inferior without your consent (thank you Eleanor Roosevelt) and that no matter where we find ourselves, who we fall in love with, what we choose to do with our lives, we are the bosses of these lives.
Williamsburg – North 10th Street and Wythe Avenue
I stumbled upon this wall; I wish standing in front of each city meant I could knock it off my list, however, I prefer to see each one in real life. Find walls that inspire you to see more of the world and step outside of our own.
New York’s Most Instagrammable Walls and Street Art: Manhattan
Lower East Side – First Avenue & East 11th Street
May not be blowing actual kisses, but I love this wall. It reminds me to have an open heart each and every day and no matter what you may be going through, it’s not your place to inflict hurt upon others. Spread a little love.
SoHo – Allen Street
Most people see this and think of angel wings; I see butterflies. We will all go through so many changes in our lives, growing pains – but we should never forget that those changes can turn into something beautiful.
Also on Allen Street, I’ve always had a thing for balloons. When I was little, I used to tell my mom all I ever wanted on my birthday was a balloon. Finding street art that is interactive can make a good picture into a great one. Don’t be afraid to be a part of something more.
Lastly, a great picture can be those when you’re truly, and genuinely being yourself.
