This out of place street art in Midtown is actually an important part of history. In the little pedestrian plaza where the area corporate drones have their lunch, is this 20 foot piece of the Berlin Wall. With paintings by artists Thierry Noir and Kiddy Citny, the five sections separated East and West Berlin.
Thierry Noir was born in France, and moved to West Berlin in 1982 as he heard David Bowie and Iggy Pop lived there. Along with artist Christophe Bouchet, he began the epic paintings that stretched along much of the Berlin Wall, some which came to be known as the East Side Gallery.
