Greene Street Cast Iron
When you ask someone their favorite New York City building, most say the Empire, the Chrysler, or the Flatiron buildings. If you ask Albert, however, he will tell you about a graffiti-covered building tucked away in SoHo. This cast-iron building on Greene Street was right around the corner from Al’s art gallery, which meant he walked past it almost every day.
Albert's piece Greene Street Cast-Iron is a culmination of some of Albert's biggest artistic muses: graffiti and old architecture. New York was in the heyday of graffiti art when Al lived there, helping to inspire many of his art pieces.
Like most neighborhoods in New York, SoHo has changed a lot since the ‘90s. Once known for its art studios, artist co-ops, and galleries by the dozens, SoHo is now home to some of the most high-end stores in the world. Greene Street Cast-Iron commemorates the history of the art scene of SoHo where Albert thrived and created for years.
