Expanding beyond their Lower East Side borders, we followed The 100 Gates Project to Staten Island where they brought local artists together with local businesses.

They began in Downtown Staten Island, including the neighborhoods of St. George, Tompkinsville, Stapleton, and Clifton, weaving through Bay Street, Van Duzer and Victory Boulevard ~ and moved on to the North Shore Expansion.

Below are a few of the colorful gates that are part of the 100 Gates Project ~ Staten Island, painted in coordination with each local artist and business owner.  We will continue to add gates, as they are brought to our attention.
