The Day | On Murals And Mr. West

Autumn, Tompkins Square Park.eastvillagedenizen

Good morning, East Village.

DNAinfo has details on the newest – and, apparently, very temporary – mural at the space at Bowery and Houston Street. NYU Journalism’s Jenn Pelly
captured an image Tuesday night of the mural in progress.

DNA also reports that the owners of the wall space at Sixth Street and Avenue C – where the mural of President Obama was recently removed – are looking for an artist to re-paint the space.

And Antonio Garcia, the artist known as Chico who created the Obama mural, spoke with New York NearSay about its removal.

In other neighborhood news, Bowery Boogie has a full report on Kanye West’s not-so-surprise concert Tuesday at the Bowery Ballroom.

And Ephemeral New York posts an unidentified archival photo from 1903 that the site believes may be a relic of the time when the East Village was known as “Little Germany.”
