The Bowery, The Bowery

Big changes downtown

Bowery Reflections
Oil on canvas
18 x 24 inches

Last night I watched a documentary about the Bowery examining the big changes that are taking place on what was once known as Skid Row. The New Museum recently opened, upscale restaurants and condos have been springing up and vestiges of the old downtown neighborhood are fast disappearing. The Bowery has long been known as the lighting district as well, and I wonder if that will remain the case with all that is currently going on. I always enjoy looking into the windows of lighting stores, so many interesting lamps, shapes and shadows, glowing lights and atmosphere. I did this painting a few years back, capturing a window on the Bowery that might or might not be around after the dust of renovation settles in the neighborhood.

I've spent countless hours walking around The Bowery and window shopping in the stores that line its streets. This is where you would go to find the oddest furnishing item for your home when everywhere else failed. It's sad to think the landmarks bldgs. and old shops are being replaced by newer bldg.
