Freshly-Painted Lamppost

As regular readers of this blog know, there's nothing like a fresh coat of paint to sprucen up the East Village!

I was walking down First Avenue yesterday, when I saw this freshly-painted lamppost, at the corner of East 10th Street:

Freshly-painted lamppost.

It would be my guess that the proprietors of the beloved First Avenue Finest Gourmet Deli did this — if the City had done it, it would have gone all the way to the top!

There must have been something pretty offensive graffitied on it, for them to take it upon themselves to paint over it. They even peeled off all the tape!

East Villagers do love to paint!

  1. that tree in the background makes me wonder... what if they had painted that lamp post as a tree trunk? and would anyone notice?
