One can always depend on this building (which is located at 4th Avenue and East 10 Street) for interesting commentary…

New York Shitty Street Art Du Jour: The Word On The Street

I am taking the glass half-full approach to this one: at least they have managed to place a fence around these premises. This is a very welcome development compared to what I saw back in January. Well done, Mr. Richard!

Closing on the subject (of Paul Richard), as luck (?) would have it I stumbled upon another piece of his handiwork on the Northside. It had been, how shall we say, “modified”. Whether or not this was done willfully and deliberately has been the subject of debate at Chez Shitty this evening. I contend it was not. The Mister contends that while the person responsible (and I can assure you this was the handiwork of a human being) may not have “planned” to do this, he/she did take placement under consideration. He opined— and I quote:

This was a crime of opportunity.

WARNING/CAVEAT:

  1. This is not for those with weak stomachs.
  2. Once you this is seen, it cannot be unseen.

Without further ado, here it is…

Those of you who wish to see this in person go to North 11th Street. It is on the sidewalk across the street from “The Whiskey” (on the premises of the Brooklyn Brewery, if my memory serves me correctly). I suppose it goes without saying: watch where you walk!

Urban Artifact: 16 Days Later

Ever had that creeping suspicion you have seen something before? I had such a feeling today when I spied upon this item: a Lite Brite. Or would that be EX-Lite Brite? In any case, when I got home I poked around my archives and, sure enough, I was correct. This item, albeit in a better state of repairs was captured by Chris Polinsky on March 12th. The curious thing is he spotted this missive at Lorimer Street and Driggs Avenue. It has since migrated to the other side of McCarren Park. Ah, the stories this object could tell…
