Culture on the Cheap
Bedford Avenue Absolut Watch: Small Victory
Some of you might recall that last week I made the acquaintance of the above gentleman. He was painting an advertisement for Absolut Brooklyn on Bedford Avenue. In the course of our conversation I pointed out to him that there was a certain, um, irregularity regarding the numeric order of two adjacent row houses. More specifically I pointed out that they were numbered “400” and “387” respectively and stated:
…In any case you might want to fix that. May I suggest you make the building on the right “398″?
Well today I happened to be back on Bedford…
and I had to know:
Did he or didn’t he (take my advice)?
The answer is…
a qualified yes!
Hey, it isn’t perfection but at least it is a step on the right direction.
P.S.: While I am on the subject, WTF is this about?
