The River Street Scrivener


bedroomsuiteTHUMBSome of you might remember this interesting find which I made last month: a squat cum-open air art gallery I found on River Street between North 1st and Grand Street (as seen above and at left). You can read my post about it in its entirety by clicking here.

Anyhoo, I have walked by this site numerous times since. Once I found a gaggle of crusties hanging out there— but they didn’t strike me as being the the kind of folk who would be responsible for this.


I recently learned I was correct.


It’s this guy (seen busy at work around the corner on North 1st Street).
