Empty Storefront Art

Safe Harbors of the Hudson has decided to use some of their empty storefront space as a makeshift phantom art gallery to sponsor the artwork of some of their residents of The Cornerstone Building. This was blogged about before. This is exciting to see that some people have also thought about this idea. And it is working. In the short time that I came up to take some photos, this woman and her husband had stopped their car just to come and take a look at the art work. Now imagine if this could happen in more empty storefront spaces in the city? Surely the impact would be positive. An informant told me that there are plans to do this in the empty window spaces at the City Club. They should be up very soon, if not already.

Sorry for the glares on the windows. My photography skills are lacking.
