16. Mulberry Street Gang Exhibit in an Empty Houston Street Lot

We love finding quirky pop-up exhibits in New York City, and we were recently excited to discover one in an empty lot at 49 East Houston Street. The exhibit, created by Steve Stollman, is small but honors something big—people who have shown bravery in challenging some of the most pressing social and political issues of their times.

The exhibit will be there until September 15, honoring the “Mulberry Street Gang” consisting of Jacob RiisTeddy RooseveltNikola TeslaMark Twain, and Joseph Keppler (founder of the barrier-breaking, satirical Puck magazine).
