I already posted about sticky note street/window art, but this one was pretty good, too.


Pieces of NYC 71: David Bowie

No disrespect intended, but when David Bowie passed away in January of 2016, New York City lost its shit.  Fans mourned with candles and teddy bears and whatnot in front of his residence, local papers published lists of his favorite NYC locations, and memorial murals popped up everywhere.

Fast forward almost two years.  This clever piece is hidden in plain sight in that area that’s not quite the East Village, but it’s also not technically Greenwich Village Either – just east of Broadway.  I can’t identify the street.  Good luck finding it!

Pieces of NYC 20: Hippo Ballerina

This lovely hippo resides in Dante Park across from Lincoln Center.  An article on Smithsonian explains that she is “part of an art installation by Danish sculptor Bjørn Okholm Skaarup. Skaarup specializes in bronze sculptures of animals—what he calls a “contemporary bestiary” of intricate creatures with tight connections to human culture.”

I like her, but then again, I like hippos.
