Houston & Ave B [NW Corner] (May 25, 20012)

"In Memory of Mom."  A mural by Antonio Garcia (Chico), honoring the beloved owner of this un-named  East Village liquor store. The owner, who locals called "mom," passed away in 2009. The store’s Houston St. wall has been Chico’s longtime canvas for his memorial murals, honoring everyone from Selena and Celia Cruz to Pope John Paul and more.    CLICK TO ENLARGE
