"The Jersey Barrier Design Initiative is a project by DOT's Urban Art
Program, and was hosted in partnership with the Mayor's Community Affairs
Unit (CAU) and New York Cares (NY Cares).
"As part of NY Cares' 16th annual "Hands On New York Day" on Saturday, April
24, more than 300 volunteers painted murals on 150 individual barriers
lining pedestrian paths and bicycle lanes in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan
"The painting of the Jersey barriers happened simultaneously in each borough
thanks to the help of CAU and NY Cares. Both enlisted numerous volunteers,
local neighborhood associations and corporate and civic groups to help the
artists paint onsite."
