Belkin Mural at May Matthews Palmer Park.

Commonly known as the Belkin Mural, New york City’s oldest extant community mural is formally known as Against Domestic Colonialism. A professor of art at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, Arnold Belkin, was commissioned to paint the Hell’s Kitchen mural in 1972. Manhattan CB4 has long sought to preserve the mural which had fallen into disrepair.
