Urban Artifact, Part II: 139 Days & Counting

Yours truly’s favorite urban artifact (and de facto mascot for the Garden Spot) is not only upright once again, but he (?) has received an offering in the form of a toilet handle. Fascinating.

This teddy (which has presided over Greenpoint Avenue at Franklin Street for at least 76 days) has undergone an interesting transformation. When I first spied him, he was donning a gas mask. A week later he was brandishing a sign which read “Crime doesn’t pay”. Now he calls Jack Daniels his companion and sports two cigarette burns on his noggin. OUCH!
