Like it or not, it’s finally summer here in Western New York! Even though we’re still social distancing to some extent, things are starting to open back up at limited capacities, and we couldn’t be more excited. As the weather continues to be so beautiful, we know that everyone’s looking for 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 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, now is the perfect time. Use our guide below to check out some of our favorite murals on the East Side, and while you’re at it, take a look at our other guides to street art that highlight other neighborhoods like Allentown, Downtown Buffalo, the West Side, and more.
