The art of reopening: Chinatown murals aim to boost visitors

If you paint it, they will come.

At least, that’s the hope for the new Chinatown Mural Project.

The brainchild of local activist Karlin Chan, the initiative aims to pull in diners and shoppers through colorful street art.

The first mural, titled “Noodle Shop,” is on Mosco St. around the corner from Transfiguration Church. A collaboration by artist Peacheeblue and Chan, it took eight hours to complete.

“I’ve wanted to put up culturally appropriate murals around Chinatown for several years now and when I met Peacheeblue, who did the double dragon murals on the construction walls of P.S. 23 the night before my rally to save P.S. 23, we started to talk and she was totally in sync with my criteria for the murals.”
