A Guide to New York City Street Art, Murals, and Colorful Walls

Today, I am bringing you all of my most favorite New York City street art, murals, colorful walls! This is my official third installment of #WallCharades, and I’m so excited to share it with you. Thankfully, I have been lucky to travel to New York City for the majority of my professional career.

As such, I am always amazed at all of the public art that canvases the five boroughs. It is always exciting to discover new colorful murals, fun street art, and interesting walls. As you probably know, I have documented most of my finds on the blog and my Instagram. However, I am especially excited to share this comprehensive guide to what I have been able to discover!

What You Can Expect from the New York Wall Guide

As with my Chicago and Los Angeles street art, mural, and colorful wall guides, this New York City list is meant to be a resource for bloggers, travelers, and anyone else who loves color and fun Instagrammable locations! Additionally, this street art guide includes exact addresses, and artist information (if known). Plus, there’s a link to my original blog post with the wall so that you can see various angles of the colorful walls and murals.

However, this list is by no means conclusive as street art, murals, and colorful walls are constantly changing, and the mural or wall may not look completely different upon your arrival.
