This Summer, The 100 Gates Project and New Harlem East Merchant Association (NHEMA) have teamed up to bring local artists together with local merchants, beautifying gates in East Harlem. The project (which also includes Staten Island), is part of the New York City Department of Small Business Service’s Neighborhood 360 grant opportunity program.

Check out some of the gates currently being painted.

First gate painted, Madison Avenue Hair Studio by artist Matt Samuelson, #smartink. This project is located at 1960 Madison Avenue, just north of 125th Street. You might recognize the artists name from his recent work on East Harlem’s  Guerrilla Wall.

South East Corner of Park Avenue and 125th Street, Artist Gera Lozano  #GeraLuz

The South East corner of Park Avenue and 125th Street was a very busy place on this very rainy day. Beside the 100 Gates Project,  which began today by Artist, Gera Lozano #GeraLuz, assisted by #WERC, on the corner gates, it appears a film crew was busy shooting The Plaza and surrounding area.  Could it be that the Design Trust Winner, Uptown Grand Central (NHEMA) is getting more attention?  #Geraluz continues tomorrow.

We got there a little to late – but were able to take a shot of a small part of the newly painted gate. We will go back.

 

There will be many more gates added to this list over the Summer. We will continue to update. Stay tuned.  And check out the #100GatesProject  Map of East Harlem gate locations!
