We’re now going on just over two months of social distancing and self-isolation due to COVID-19 here in Western New York. We’re hopeful that the state will be entirely reopened within the next month or so, but especially as the weather seems to be actually staying nice, we know that everyone’s looking for fun, new ways to get out of the house for a while and enjoy some fresh air. If that’s you, might we recommend one of our favorite solo outdoor activities: exploring all of Buffalo’s beautiful street art.

If you’ve been meaning to explore a new part of town and see some of these street art masterpieces in person, it’s basically the perfect time. Use our guide below to check out some of the best murals in South Buffalo, Larkinville, and the Old First Ward neighborhood, and while you’re at it, check out our guides to street art on Hertel, Elmwood, Allentown, the Southtowns, Downtown Buffalo, and the West Side
