It’s easy to get lost in the chaos of New York’s concrete jungle. The hustle and bustle of the urban terrain adds insult to injury as locals find themselves negotiating busy schedules amidst even busier streets. There’s no time to linger in the city that never sleeps. And so, as a gift to fellow New Yorkers on the go, Harlem Native Franco the Great offers some artistic R&R in his colorful street art collection on Harlem’s 125th Street . Painting on storefront gates along the infamous strip, the self proclaimed “Picasso of Harlem,” is transforming the neighborhoods aesthetic landscape from a colorless concrete catwalk to  “Franco’s Blvd,” a premier street museum in Harlem.
