South African spaces in New York

I was walking between lines on the subway today when I came upon this poster

It was in a whole corridor of similar posters

As I had been writing about South African space outside of South Africa, it was a slightly surreal experience to encounter such a markedly South African space in such a definitively New York environment. There was busked jazz audible in the background, and everyone, including me, was bundled up in their winter coats, sweltering in the subway’s muggy, acrid heat.

The website listed on the posters is here. I haven’t had time to explore it yet.

While I am posting photos, though, I thought I'd post this one of a shop display on 10th street near 5th avenue
