New York may be known the world over for its top-notch museums, but even if you don't have time to visit the Met, MoMA or the Brooklyn Museum, or can't afford the admission, there's plenty of awe-worthy art waiting for you right on the street. Next time you're out training for a marathon, meeting a friend for brunch, or even commuting to work, keep your eyes peeled for the city's best street art. Here are some of our favorite examples of what you could be appreciating:
