Street Art | 2800 Main HTX

This used to be a Mental Health Building over a decade ago before a tropical storm flooded it and it fell into disrepair. Its been up for sale a number of times but still, here in 2014, it remains vacant. The street art on this building is not the stealthy variety that pops up in other neighbourhoods in Houston. It would be nearly impossible to be stealthy in an area with bar life that goes well on until 4am and work life that starts at 6am.  The building owners actually sanctioned the work. At least now its a little more appealing and the constant stream of street art tourists keep what used to be constant drug deals and prostitution in and around the building down to almost zero.

Almost, so please exercise some street smarts if you’re going to spend time here.

    Street Art makes all the difference. The “peeps” in the hood respect it. My friend Jane, had the side of her Studio in SA painted/tagged. It is an excellent addition. I”ll send you a picture.
