Welcome Mosaic Gone

Back in November, I posted a picture of a "Welcome to the East Village" mosaic at the corner of Avenue A and St. Mark's Place.

Passing by there yesterday, I discovered the mosaic is gone:

"Welcome" mosaic gone.

Only a few tiles remain of this once-proud gateway to the East Village. No one knows who did this, but the artist himself, known only as the Mosaic Man, has been known to remove his mosaics when the mood strikes him.

One thing about the disappearance of works of art from the East Village is that it opens up the space for even better works of art!

Every flat surface is a canvas… in the East Village Today!
