    I absolutely love it! Street art is such an important aspect of culture in NYC and the world at large. I hope this trend continues to grow.

    That’s awesome. And chalk art is something so temporary as well. So you must have felt special being one of the few to see those!

      So true– this chalk artwork was fleeting. Although, since I live in a popular area of the city (the East Village), perhaps ten thousand people saw it too 🙂

    I wonder if he got his start making hop scotch arrangements as a kid?

      Your timing is impeccable Ted– just a few days ago I walked down the same stretch of St Marks Place and a group of high school/college-age kids had created a chalk hopscotch board on the street. They were invited pedestrians to play!

      I also enjoyed the treasure-hunt aspect of this chalk art– I kept following the trail to see what the next drawing would look like!
