this was part of an art installation on the Bowery back in October of 08. The reclining lady below was also part of the installation, I have two more pics to share. that corner is currently becoming a chic hotel I believe. Just what we need around here.

FYI, the Bowery used to be skidrow, the home of derelicts, and some of Manhattan's more colorful history, not far from five points depicted in Scorsese's Gangs of New York. Now it's gentrified and only a few flophouses remain. They've even begun razing some beautiful 200 year old structures to make way for more hipster dross. God help us.

What's left in NY that is NOT gentrified? (Guess I'm thinking of Harlem and the Clintons, but haven't I heard similar things about Brooklyn and Queens?)

Nathalie said...

Now that's spectacular enough! But I have to agree with Banjo52 - if it's an installation eeeeek, that's totally gentrified!

Ya, another example of the 'way of the fricken world' these days!

I read your explanations above that answered my question too. I found a picture once of Bob Marley painted on the inside wall of an old dark and almost buried military bunker used to guard Wellington Harbour. Some artists are truly fantastic. Wish I could draw... An amazing picture - Dave

This is really nice! I wish I could see it in person.
