Since the summer of 2017, we've been working with the 100 Gates Project, Union Settlement and the NYC Department of Small Business Services' Neighborhood 360 program to connect artists with our small businesses, to create original murals each store's roll-down security gate. This sanctioned street art created by the minds and hands of some of the city’s most talented, hard-working artists helps to beautify the neighborhood -- transforming our streets into an open-air gallery that is "open" even when our stores are closed.
