New York City Construction Gets An Art Lesson

Click For Slideshow

New York is a city of perpetual construction. Whether it’s fixing up old buildings or creating new ones, it’s hard to pass a block without seeing some sort of construction being worked on.

But just because one day the completed project will hopefully be eye catching, doesn’t mean the people in the area also need to suffer the months of unsightly mess, noise and destruction that goes with it.

For the residents and passerbys of London Terrace Gardens on 425 W. 25th St., those typical images of construction have been transformed into a display worthy of the Museum of Modern Art.

Check out the slide show to see just how ArtBridge, an non-profit urban arts organization, is bringing a small slice of high culture to Chelsea’s long-standing scaffolding.
