DDG’s 100 Franklin in Tribeca is now the site of a new massive mural by JR, the internationally acclaimed Parisian artist. The image is an enlargement of a photo that was originally taken in Ellis Island in 1908 and was featured in JR,’s “Unframed, Ellis Island” exhibit.

The completed installation as seen this past weekend

This same wall was the site of JR’s 95-foot ballerina, one of our favorite street art pieces of 2015. We especially appreciate the new mural – and its reminder that we are a nation of immigrants – at a time when so many are seeking refuge from catastrophic events throughout the globe.
