Street Scenes | The Bean Gets Wall Art

The Bean - Wall ArtDaniel Maurer

Here’s your first look at new art on the walls of The Bean’s forthcoming location at First Avenue and Ninth Street (more shots here and here). An employee at the Second Avenue store says it should open in a month or two.

Also turning heads just a block away: the plywood signage at Iconic Hand Rolls has been crudely defaced (hint: it’s no longer hand rolls that are being offered). Owner David Ravvin can’t be happy about that, but Joe Dobias, whose sandwich shop JoeDough is next door, likes what he sees.

Update: Nicolina, the East Village artist who has contributed to the Bean’s other locations and is currently painting a harbor of boats in Brazil, tells us the artist behind this latest work is Walker Fee.
