The Day | Co-op Talk and Street Art

GWNY089Janko Puls

Good morning, East Village.

As we emerge from a weekend of costumes and revelry, we find the New York Post focused on an East 11th Street co-op where the exceptionally low priced units are currently owned by women only, including local political figures Rosie Mendez and Margarita Lopez.

Bowery Boogie has a post describing new graffiti activity at the Barry McGee mural at Bowery and Houston. So far the random alterations are nothing as destructive as those which afflicted the Shepard Fairey mural at the same location.

Ephemeral New York takes a look back at East Village art of an earlier time, reproducing an East Village Eye cutting from 1983 about the art gallery (and party) scene on Avenue B.
