New York Shitty analysis:
- One empty fifth of vodka (educated guess): check
- One shrink-wrapped Japanese cucumber: check
- I’d say someone had one hell of a Saturday night…
but could we honestly expect anything less from “BIGBUX”?
P.S.: To my knowledge this piece of feral furniture has graced this sidewalk for at least 55 days.

This comes from former Greenpointer, environmental badass and former NCA head honcha, Kate Zidar. She writes:
Can you offer a long term home to these two wonderful cats? They are not bio siblings, but they have been raised together. One super-affectionate calico female and one super-independent tuxedo male. About Kitten – Female calico who loves to give and get attention. She will entertain you with her fetch-skills (see video), but will also sit on your keyboard as you try to work. So…she’s a calico. About Beta: He is a Greenpoint native, born on Oak Street and saved from the streets by Jane Pool. He started out as Kitten’s baby bro and playmate, but is now a great young male, always refined in his tuxedo and very easygoing.

This is one of many such missives I encountered this afternoon on Flushing Avenue between Union and Nostrand Avenue. Anyone out there conversant in Hebrew? If so, please share. I’m intrigued.

There are some things one does not see everyday. Fellows removing street art from their premises is most assuredly not one of them. Thus when I saw this on North 7th Street this afternoon I hung around. I figured I’d get a nice piece of free (!) art by BD White. Alas, it was not to be.
Yes, these men were removing this piece. This is because they were going to place a rather large piece of wood over the entrance of the gate (where it was located). They did not want to damage the art. This is because they like it!
So over it went, piece by piece.
And, as you can see, I hung around to make sure it was “just so”.
This, the last and final piece, was held in place not just with screws, but some kind of adhesive. This posed to be a problem. I suggested that perhaps a flathead screwdriver would work. No worries: these guys had the situation totally under control!
The last panel sustained a little damage to the back— but the imagery survived just fine.
Naturally, I had to bring this highly unusual (and downright awesome) passing of events to the artist. I am certain BD— or would that be Mr./Ms. White?— has got to be tickled pink to learn his (?) work has two very cool fans. Art lovers: you never know where you’ll find them. Today it was on a construction site on North 7 Street— tomorrow, who knows? Well done, guys!
UPDATE, 5:57 p.m.: BD White speaks!
Hey here is the original photo. You can see that they only moved it one board over. I think it’s so awesome that they moved it rather than just throwing it away. I was worried that they might be told to just paint over it, but I guess I don’t have to worry anymore! I put up 3 that day. 1 large and 2 smaller ones. I had one of the smaller ones on the corner of Bedford and N 7th but I just saw today that someone stole it. I guess the construction adhesive I used didn’t work so well… Thanks!
Props/Thanks: go out to Jilly Ballistic for putting yours truly in touch with BD White!
