This summer, the Garment District Alliance is bringing a vibrant mural to the New York City community. Created by district-based artist Steed Taylor, Bit, Bridle and Reins consist of a yellow-colored Celtic braid atop a tanzanite blue background displayed across 63 concrete blocks along the 7th Avenue pedestrian corridor from 35th to 41st Streets. The mural’s linear material has been printed on vinyl and applied to both sides of the concrete blocks, allowing passersby and drivers to enjoy the artwork from now until April 2023. 

Bit, Bridle and Reins is part of the Garment District Alliance’s free summer programming, which also includes Broadway Rhythm, a series of weekly live music performances held on Wednesdays from 12 to 2 p.m. at the Garment District pedestrian plaza until August 31. In addition, the district will also serve Renegade Lemonade during lunchtime at the Broadway Squeeze stand located between 39th and 40th Streets through August 25th.
