    Default DKNY Mural - Where is it?

    Can anyone please tell me exactly where the DKNY mural is (I hope it's still there). *I gather it's on Sixth Avenue somewhere but no more precise than that.
    Thank you

    If your talking about the mural with alot of NYC skyscrapers and then the Statue of Liberty in the foreground....

    I've seen those all over New York City. I don't know if there is an "original" one, but when I made *my trek from Midtown to Downtown (A great walk!) I could have sworn seeing many of those DKNY murals.

    I'm not familiar with the mural, but found a photographer on Google who is selling prints of a DKNY mural. You could ask him where it was taken.

    There's one not too far from my apartment somewhere. I want to say Houston St. and Broadway. Yeah, it's a good one.

    Thanks everyone. *I had no idea there was more than one!

    I don't know which one was being referred to but I've read that it's 50 feet tall; but I guess with that kind of detail, it would need to be fairly big.

    This is the one I was talking about (the Dan Heller photo is also of the same building).

    Don't know where the guidebook got Sixth Avenue from...

    The picture is looking south on Broadway at Houston Street. *Houston has a lot of those mural type ads because back when it was widened they removed a lot of the buildings fronting on it which exposed a lot of windowless side walls and therefore advertising space.

    Incidentally, a lot of these truncated lots along Houston which are currently being used for surface parking are starting to rebuild buildings better configured for these lots. Nothing against the signs, but I hope these new residential and retail units help this popular street look less scarred and more like a neighborhood again.

    Yeah, Houston has a lot of unfulfilled potential.
