Hello Wall at Carrera Cafe
Serving an interesting and ever-changing wall along with European-style cafe goodies, this pretty floral wall is located outside Carerra Cafe (and conveniently across the street from the Paul Smith pink wall). Feed your kids a chocolate croissant and then get them to happily pose among the flowers. The mid-morning sun can be especially harsh so try and hit this one earlier in the day or later in the afternoon.
This dose of pink has its own hashtag (#pinkwall) and makes everything that stands in front of it look good thanks to its saturated color. Go early because lines form the later it gets (seriously). Once you've grabbed your shot, head across the street to Carrera Cafe to grab a bite and watch everyone else get their 'gram game going. You may even spot some Insta-famous Influencers.
8221 Melrose Ave.
When we were searching out cool locations, we approached this one thinking it was a black and white wall with really cool graphic designs but, as is the nature of these living art pieces, we found this colorful incarnation had recently been painted over the other one. Lesson learned: If you really want a photo in front of one of these special murals, don't waste any time or totally go with the flow and be surprised by the new art you've found on your journey!
Corner of 555 S Fairfax Ave. and Lindenhurst Ave.
