Photographer's Note

I recently took a walk around the Lower East Side and the East Village looking for new street art. I passed by a restaurant that was closed for indoor dining, and there was some colorful art on their metal shutters.

At first I was attracted by the “I Love New York” message, and then I saw the two gentlemen chatting near the doorway. I included them in my shot without being overly-obvious, but it seems like they knew what I was doing. :-)

I must admit that I didn’t know who Milton Glaser was. I did some research, and found that that he was a very prolific graphic designer from NYC, and he actually designed the “I Love New York” logo! Other works included logos for DC Comics, and many more. He also was the co-founder of New York Magazine.

Milton Glaser passed away in June 2020 at the age of 91. This artwork is a nice tribute to the life-long New Yorker.
