Looking for some free fun in Manhattan? A city where everything costs as much as Donald Trump’s yearly self-tanner supply?
My friend and I spent a recent rainy Sunday morning doing just that. (Finding free fun—not purchasing vast amounts of self-tanner.)
We headed down to the Lower East Side and checked out the wonderful graffiti art on 100 roll-up doors for businesses scattered all around the neighborhood. They were part of an art project that was installed by the 100 Gates Project people. Here is a map and a list of business addresses available from their website: www.100gates.nyc.
We met at 7:00am and got to the neighborhood about 7:30am. After a pastry and coffee, we were off and managed to see quite a few of them before we got tired of being cold and wet and decided to call it a day.
Since they’re on roll-up doors, I suggest you plan accordingly and go before or after business hours to see them. Again, here’s their link for a map and a list of business addresses on the website: www.100gates.nyc.
