A Fatal Shooting on Pitt St.

There’s a grim report this morning from a bit south of our neighborhood: a 23-year-old man was shot and killed just after 12:30 a.m. Tuesday at 85 Pitt Street on the Lower East Side; the authorities identified the victim as Jonathan Alston, of Brooklyn. The Lo-Down provided coverage of the shooting throughout the morning. The Local has reporters on the story and we will provide more details as they become available.

Good morning, East Village

The sounds of the citywide free festival Make Music New York could be heard in the East Village yesterday. The Village Beat found a small outdoor concert in Astor Place, hosted by the local live performance venue, Joe’s Pub.

The performance artist Liu Bolin camouflaged himself into the Kenny Scharf mural yesterday near the intersection of Houston Street and Bowery. The Wooster Collective shared photos of the wall’s transformation.

But more outdoor art might be put on hold this week; The Weather Channel predicts several days of off and on thunderstorms, making the jump into summer a wet one.
