Julian Cole, the artist responsible for the really neat— but regrettably short-livedBrooklyn Christmas Tree writes yesterday, February 13th:

Hey Heather,

I hope you are doing well!

I just thought I would give you the heads up on my next project, I am putting up another little art piece tomorrow on the Williamsburg Bridge. I am creating a sign ‘Brooklyn (Heart Sign) U’ the heart sign will have 21 plastic roses in the middle. On each of the roses I am going to have a little note like the one below will say ‘I love when you drunken call me at 3AM, keep being awesome Love Brooklyn’ and I am going to tell people to take the roses. I am going to do it about 9AM, I will make sure to take some photos and send them to you.

Without further ado here they are!

I suspect I speak for quite a few people when I thank Julian for doing this! This has made my— and undoubtedly many others (like the above couple’s)— day!

Spotted On West Street: Puppy Love

This morning yours truly woke up in a churlish mood. This was further exacerbated by a walk down West Street. It was there I noticed the subject of my Poo Corner Project, a ground-breaking experiment in behavior modification, had reverted back to his rather unpleasant habit of saturation bombing the sidewalk with dog shit. I decided action was necessary and to this end procured some supplies including but not limited to my usual war chest of sidewalk chalk and glitter; a piece of poster board and Conversation Hearts. I felt a Valentine’s Day theme was in order.

A stencil was made, glitter poured and the bag of confectionery goodness opened.

Noting the relevance of this one, I decided its placement on one of the showcased shits was crucial.

Pick me.

As I was completing my project a young man and woman stopped to look at my handiwork. They were quite amused and wanted to know what gives. I tendered a brief summary of the Poo Corner Project while pointing out the heart stating “puppy love”. To wit one of my new friends replied:

That’s what I am feeling right now.

and went on the explain he was a student at Baruch College and was soon to begin military service in the Marines. I told him the former was really laudable and the latter really sweet. In return he asked me for my phone number. Not wishing to hurt his feelings I let him down gently:

If was not married I’d gladly give it to you. Chicks who cover dog shit with glitter tend to go pretty fast.

Upon noticing I was ascribing a date to this dung he kindly offered the time from his cell phone: 2:16 p.m. I thanked him but added that I didn’t think it wasn’t necessary. However, we unanimously agreed this work of art needed a title. So I gave it one.

This one’s for you, Jamal!
