Inwood, Just off Broadway Between Isham and 212th Streets

One way to get to the A Train is to walk down Park Terrace East to Isham Park, then walk through the park (it's a small park, only a few blocks long, as you can see if you click on the map link) and down the stairs to a paved walkway that leads to Broadway. This building is on the other side of the walkway. It fronts on Isham Street and backs onto Isham Park.

The graffiti is on the side of a smaller building which faces Broadway, and as long as I've lived here, that wall has been painted, but it changes from time to time. Not being a follower of street art, I can't tell you who did it or if the artist is well known in the street art world. Anyone know?

I have to show two photos tonight. I tried to pick one, but I can't.

That's the prettiest graffiti I've ever seen!

And, to anthromorphosize (spelling?) a house: Doesn't it look like a face/house wearing a mask? Great mask. I realize we see faces everywhere possible.
