A graffiti mecca since 1982, the wall went legit in 2008 when the owners invitedOs Gmeos, Shepard Fairey and Lady Aiko among others to rotate pieces on the wall.

You’ll want to go see this one soon. The cultural landmark is set for demolition to make way for housing in the future. Bronx artists have been drawn to the wall for years.

The LA River is maybe most famous for that great truck chase in Terminator 2, but it’s also a graffiti mecca for its big concrete walls. A popular spot for huge pieces.
