Pearl Street Painting

Callowhill's Pearl Street got a bit of a facelift the other day. By facelift, I mean it got a fresh coat of paint, and by that, I mean the actual street got painted.

I have no idea where it came from, if it's an art installation, some kind of nod to Callowhill's Viaduct Park ambitions, or a promotional stunt by Post Brothers.

The color is pretty close to the green used in Post Brother's Goldtex Apartments.

Whoever did it and why, it looks pretty damn cool. The street (more like an alley) is mostly unused and lined with nothing of note, so the paint adds a splash of color the way a Favela Painting camouflages the slums of Rio.

But hey, whatever works. Check it.
