East Villagers abhor a blank wall!

I was riding my Citibike down Second Avenue this past Tuesday when I saw this artist creating a mural on a construction fence beside the beloved fresco:

Creating a mural.

He must have had permission to do this, because it was broad daylight, and he wasn't looking over his shoulder!

Fast forward to yesterday, and the mural was complete:

Completed mural, front view.

Completed mural, corner view.

The construction fence along the abandoned section of St. Mark's Place, on the other hand, is less decorative:

Less decorative construction fence.

Still, it has movie posters — that's something!

  1. as you walk by the multiple movie posters, you can read parts of each one, and by the time you get to the end, you will have read the whole poster - all without losing neither stride nor step!


    1. The people who conceive these things are the geniuses of the 21st century!

    2. thank you!

      :-) i guess i will add that to my resume? something like: noted as a 'genius of the 21st century' by the EVT blog. :-) :-)
