Epic Alec Monopoly Mural on 199 Bowery Sidewalk Shed
The practice is becoming commonplace at construction sites these days. Decorate the eyesore with art. And that’s exactly what’s happening down at 199 Bowery where the EMM Group is ushering in the new era of Lower Eastpacking. The bitter pill of a one-story plywood mess is now easier to swallow. But we’re still choking over here.

Paintwork on the awesome mega-mural began Sunday afternoon, and is the latest creation from LA-based pop-artist Alec Monopoly. However, the piece is still in progress. Mr. Monopoly will be out there for the next few days to wrap up.
Lower East Siders are probably most familiar with Alec’s ubiquitous Monopoly Man pasters around the neighborhood.
