The Lower East Side (LES) neighborhood has been the subject of countless movies, songs, and stories — but now the downtown locale has its own coloring book. Legends of the Lower East Side is a collaboration between Outlaw Art Museum owner and photographer Clayton Patterson, and artists Troy Harris and Orlando Bonilla. The roughly $12 book (not on sale just yet) features 24 of the neighborhood’s most iconic and colorful characters — several no longer with us. In keeping with the spirit of the project, Patterson intends to sell them locally. Everyone from artist Dash Snow SACER and activist Ai Weiwei are included. Click through for a preview of the book, see who you recognize, and debate who should or shouldn’t be included below.
