"Real World" graffitti

Canal Street

This is strictly for pop culture junkies. Look closely and you can see the original painted logo of MTV's "The Real World" used in the opening montage ("this is the story of seven strangers forced to live in a house..." etc.) from their first season (1991/2). If you still pine for the days of Eric, Julie and Heather B., go there and light a candle. Far end of Canal Street before you get to the Hudson River.
