[Photo: Knowlita]We recently came across Knowlita, a New York-based design studio that has created a bunch of cool prints depicting the streets of NYC and San Fran, in an aesthetically modern font. New York neighborhoods represented are SoHo, Williamsburg, the Lower East Side, Nolita, and the West Village.

From their site:

In New York City, the streets mean something more. Their names are iconic; the neighborhoods in which they reside known equally for what happens there as for the streets they contain. Yes, those neighborhoods transform and evolve, people come and go, but the streets remain a constant, the rare permanence in a city known for its ebb and flow. The streets in New York City have been there through it all, their names the same but what they represent, the visceral feelings they evoke, changing from season to season, from year to year, and from generation to generation.

We’re keen on the LES monochrome print, but there are also color variations for the discriminating taste. And, if your ‘hood isn’t listed, you can email them for a custom print. Their spring collection includes listing out BK and Boston neighborhoods, as well as Seinfeld characters in the show’s signature colors.

All prints measure 18 x 24, which is awesome for inexpensive framing purposes. Street prints are limited edition, and run $30. Check them out here.
