Potamkin Development Congratulates Uptown Grand Central on a Successful Debut of the Uptown GrandScale Mural Project


EAST HARLEM, N.Y., Sept. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Potamkin Development is honored to be a sponsor for Uptown Grand Central's new mural project, which will cover more than 1,500 feet of green construction panels around the 125th Street Metro-North station in East Harlem. Over three installation days in September, the area will be transformed from a bleak landscape to a vibrant corridor of art and culture.

Andi Potamkin, President of Potamkin Development, at Uptown GrandScale on September 7, 2019.

The event began on Saturday, September 7th and was covered in the NY Daily News as well as being featured on local news channels ABC-7, NY1, and PIX11. Artists and volunteers, including Andi Potamkin, President of Potamkin Development, joined together to begin transforming the dull green plywood surrounding Metro-North corridor on 125th and 124th streets. By the end of the day, nearly 20 murals had been completed by participating local artists.

Andi Potamkin said: "Uptown Grand Central is making invaluable contributions to the 125th Street Corridor, and we jumped at the opportunity to help bring art into this public space. Spending the first installation day volunteering with Uptown Grand Central to provide supplies and support to these incredible street artists was such a rewarding way to see this project come to life and to personally engage with the community."

As a company that values making sure that neighborhoods are beautiful, livable spaces, Potamkin Development was a natural sponsor for the Uptown GrandScale project.

The Uptown GrandScale project will continue on September 14 and September 22, featuring over 50 artists chosen with preference given to applicants from Harlem, Upper Manhattan and the Bronx. Women, who have been historically underrepresented in the field of street art, feature strongly in this group of artists.
