Swoon Mural on Bowery and Houston (Close Up)

The ever changing mural on Bowery and Houston in New York has changed yet again.  This time, it’s designed by street artist Swoon.  I went to see the mural at night, so the pix I took are not that great, but I plan on visiting in the day time before it comes down.
