1. Sew and Sew, a Road Tattoo, in the Garment District

Sew and Sew, a 400 foot-long road tattoo by artist Steed Taylor

The Garment District Alliance, in partnership with the NYC Department of Transportation, present Sew and Sew as this season’s installation. Two blocks totaling 400-feet have been closed to traffic and painted by artist Steed Taylor. The “road tattoos” are part of the Garment District Urban Garden, which is a summer-long expanded plaza featuring not only art, but also food, a beer garden, and seating. Sew and Sew can be found between 36th and 37th Streets, and between 39th and 40th Streets. The installation is part of a year-round public art program made possible through Arterventions, part of the NYC Department of Transportation’s Art Program, in coordination with the Garment District Alliance.
