NYC Street Tilt-Shift Scene

Artist Alan Wolfson recently completed an incredibly detailed miniature sculpture that will make you do a double take! Called Canal St. Cross-Section, the tri-level piece pays homage to one of the most famous streets in New York City.

Canal Street is not just a major thoroughfare connecting Brooklyn and New Jersey, it’s a major street known for its busy commercial district, old school storefronts and Chinatown, where knock-off bags are a dime a dozen.
This one piece took the artist 18 months to complete from start to finish. See it from all angles below.

It’s interesting to note that Wolfson purposely leaves his scenes empty of people. As he says, “There are never people present, only things they have left behind; garbage, graffiti, or a tip on a diner table, all give the work a sense of motion and a storyline.” Amazing.
