In this Nov. 7, 2013 photo, Rick Destito poses near the “Before I Die” wall he painted on the former factory building he owns in Syracuse, N.Y. The inscription on the building invites passers-by to complete the sentence: “Before I die, I want to...” The phenomenon became global since artist Candy Chang created the first wall on an abandoned house in her New Orleans neighborhood in 2011. More than 400 walls have gone up in the United States as well as 60 other countries. (AP Photo/Carolyn Thompson)
