Tourist Information Board (September 17 - April 12, 2007)

Acknowleding Triple Candie's role as a tourist destination and an outpost in an otherwise largely untrafficked part of Harlem (west of Central Harlem), these murals served the practical function of directing those unfamiliar with the area to points of interest. These included Bill Clinton's office, Starbucks, Little Senegal, Dinosaur B-B-Q, the future site of Columbia University's expansion, Fairway Supermarket's famous walk-in meat freezer, and the Department of Motor Vehicles.

The diptych mural was on view for seven months before it was destroyed. The mural was painted by Triple Candie without the involvement of artists.
