This mural depicting what appears to be the likeness of Union leader and labor organizer Caesar Chavez can be found on a building located on Layette Street between Canal and Howard.

However, despite the close resemblance to Chavez, the group of musicians clearly visible above his head makes me think that this man might actually be a famous musician. Sadly, I could find nothing about this mural on the Google, believe it or not.

A Study in Yellow

There aren’t too many more weeks (days, even) left in the fall season that we’ll be seeing brightly colored trees like this; at least not here in the City. What I love most about the yellow-leafed tree is the way its color is set-off by the yellow School Crossing Ahead sign, and the three (count ’em!) yellow NYC Taxi’s parked at the adjacent curb. When have you seen three parked taxis all in a row like that?

Photographed in Chinatown, November 2014.
