I felt a huge sense of pride as I discovered this mural by Nick Walker on September 11. I love New York too! To think that 11 years ago on that horrible day, not only was I living in Los Angeles, but I’d never even visited New York let alone thought that one day I would be living here. It was quite a powerful moment for me.

The above Nick Walker painting in New York is being torn down! Tragedy! You can see it, prior to it’s untimely demise here. But when one door closes another one opens. Or in this case, when one Nick Walker is destroyed, another one goes up.
