Weekday Sketchers at the Bloody Angle
Doyers Alley, a small street in Chinatown, also known as the Bloody Angle (because when the gangs ran rampant in NYC bodies were routinely dropped there after clashes) has been turned into a work of art for the next few months. Chen Dongfen, a Chinese artist, has painted a mural the whole length of the street and the city has turned it into a pedestrian mall for the next few months. The mural is called the Song of Dragon and Flowers and is a portrait of Doyers Alley past and present.
