Exciting news: Keith Haring's Crack is Wack mural on the handball courts in East Harlem is now fully restored. The beloved mural, which served as a warning to crack cocaine addiction, has undergone numerous paint overs and repaintings since it was first created by Haring in 1986.
The East Harlem neighborhood, also known as El Barrio, is one of the city's most vibrant areas, offering plenty in terms of history, art, culture and food.
The work Keith Haring left behind for New Yorkers to enjoy, with more than 8 public works in NYC.
A playground in East Harlem is famous for its less-than-legally installed antidrug mural by Keith Haring, reading "Crack is Wack."
