Gone are the days when graffiti was solely an illegal, after-dark art form. These days, neighborhoods regularly welcome a variety of street artists to beautify empty walls and drab alleys. The Times put together a pre-Labor Day alfresco tour that takes viewers from the whimsically eerie "os gemêos" mural in the Stillwell Avenue station at Coney Island to the soon-to-be demolished 5 Pointz to a 1980s sculptural relief on the side of a South Bronx apartment complex. Hop on your bike and see them for yourself or click through for photos. [NYT; photo by woodendesigner/Curbed Flickr pool]
