Baayfalls on the Highline

The newest mural visible as you walk the High Line Park is “The Baayfalls” by Jordan Casteel.

“I am not interested in competing with anyone. I hope we all make it.” The mural is a portrait of Fallou, a woman who sells hats in Harlem and her brother Baay Demba Sow who was visiting from Senegal. He is member of Baye Fall movement, a West African Sufi order that is part of the Mouride brotherhood.
