A Keith Haring Mural in Queens Faces an Uncertain Future

A lively Keith Haring mural located in a building in Morningside, Queens, faces an uncertain future as the structure’s longtime owners might be selling or leasing the property to developers. Haring painted the mural in the 1980s, when the structure was home to a Catholic youth organization. The building was later acquired by the Church of Ascension and turned into rentals. The church has been facing financial difficulties and announced that tenants would need to vacate their apartments by August 1.
