Bringing Lil Crazy Legs to life on East 7th Street

Back on Friday, artist Ernest Zacharevic created this tribute to Lil Crazy Legs on East Seventh Street between Avenue A and First Avenue (next to Porchetta)…

The work is the last in a Replay wall collaboration series around NYC with photojournalist Martha Cooper.

Zacharevic, who's based in Penang, Malaysia, has been recreating Cooper's photos from the 1970s-80s. Lil Crazy Legs — aka Richard Colón of the Bronx-based Rock Steady Crew from the early 1980s — is on the cover of her photo book "Hip Hop Files: Photographs 1979-1984."
