Photos of Hell’s Kitchen, NYC

Graffiti 1989

Back in the 1980s and 90s local graffiti artists were asked to do murals in the playground. These murals were respected and not marked up with others’ graffiti or tags. This artist, Victor (I forget his last name) did a beautiful one called Summer Scene, which unfortunately I didn’t photograph. It was blue – cool blue. The playground is Mathews-Palmer, mid-block between 9th and 10th Avenues, on West 45th and 46th Streets, in Manhattan, New York City. I lived in that neighborhood for more than 20 years. More photos

  1. I lived in the upper-upper West Side during those years (106th Street – Duke Ellington Blvd.) with many friends in Hell’s Kitchen (especially in Manhattan Plaza, the Artist’s High Rise across from a row of off-off B’way theatre venues.) Tho’ I no longer dwell in NYC, I miss it still – like a lover!
