City Council Member Ayala Joins Young Artists Paint Mural At The Crossing In East Harlem

July 19, 2021

On Monday, July 19, 2021, 23 youth apprentices from Creative Art Works were joined by East Harlem City Council Member Diana Ayala.

As they worked on a mural that captures their experience of city life at The Crossing, 1962 1st Avenue in East Harlem, a mixed-income housing development.

L+M Development Partners and Invesco Real Estate acquired the property in 2019 in a deal that preserved the building complex’s at-risk affordable units for an additional 40 years and is now undertaking major capital improvements.


The new mural will not only enliven the improved public spaces for residents, but it also provides the youth apprentices with a unique hands-on opportunity to create public art in their community.

The attendees included New York City council member Diana Ayala, youth apprentices painting the mural, and representatives from L+M Development Partners and Creative Art Works.
