Ahead of the rise of their eight-story condo building on Tribeca’s Franklin Street, DDG has tapped French street artist JR to bring a little bit of street art to the site at 100 Franklin.


The installation is a 95- by 88-foot copy of a 1908 photograph taken on Ellis Island, through which immigrants first passed on their way into the country. The installation is a snippet of the Parisian street artist’s exhibition “Unframed, Ellis Island,” which also includes a short film featuring Robert De Niro. The installation was made possible through the DDG Foundation.
