Iconic Artist Keith Haring Mural At Risk In Harlem

August 12, 2016

HaringBy Councilperson Mark Levine

residential building which houses dozens of tenants and a mural by the iconic Keith Haring is in danger of being lost to our community. Formerly known as Grace House, the building’s current owner is in the process of fielding offers on the property to developers who could redevelop the  nearly century old building and construct luxury units in its place. I am deeply concerned about the current tenants residing in the building and about losing such an important piece of our history, which is why I have called for the Landmarking of the mural. My office also reached out to the current property owner and the Keith Haring Foundation, so that we can work together in preserving this treasured part of our neighborhood.
