Last year was the first installation of the Coney Island Art Walls, a street art festival sponsored by Thor Equities, the major developer along Coney Island‘s main drag.  There are 21 new walls this year by street artists you’ll certainly recognize like Daze, Icy & Sot, Tats Cru, Nychos, Stephen (ESPO) Powers, Aiko, Haze, and many more. Then there are also walls brought back from last year by Lady Pink, Buff Monster, Sheryo & The Yok, IRAK, and more. We headed there a few days before July 4th weekend to take in the sights. Here they are!
