Adding to the devastation caused by ‘Irene’s’ NYC stopover, is this shocking photogtraph taken at the Bowery Mural early Sunday. The rainfall mercilessly drenched JR’s work to the point that Kenny Scharf’s mural appeared to be making a comeback. (Photo: ANIMALNewYork)

The Urban Wilderness
SCENE TITLE: The Urban Wilderness A family of European tourists, I think they were speaking French, was clustered on the sidewalk near two parked cars. I wondered what they were doing there so I looked into the street. Between the cars there was a man hoisting a little girl of about 7 under the arms. Her pants were down, her legs were in the air, and she was peeing in the gutter. The tourists...
Say Something Nice! →
Improve Everywhere constructed a custom wooden lectern with a megaphone holster and an attached sign that read, “Say Something Nice.” The lectern was placed in public spaces around New York and then left alone. We wanted to see what would happen if New Yorkers were given the opportunity to amplify their voices to “say something nice.”
#1 Uptown train p.m.rush hr.
SCENE TITLE:#1 Uptown train p.m.rush hr. Crowded rush hour train; seats filled, people standing.I hear,”Boop boop de doop”. After a few refrains, I look up to see who, what and why. It’s a woman standing, directing her gaze at the woman seated beneath her. Again, “Boop boop de doop.” I take a closer look and notice that the seated woman is wearing hospital scrubs imprinted with the image of Betty...

Furry Brooklyn Sardine
CHARACTER TITLE:Furry Brooklyn Sardine On a crowded L train in the morning, everyone is packed in like Brooklyn sardines. I was standing near the doors, jammed next to people on all sides. After about 5 minutes on the train I happened to glance to my left, and saw a dog’s face just staring straight at me at eye level. He was a black and white pug, his head poking out of his owners bag around his...
Rad and Reckless: An Overview of Punk Graphic...
Any fan of the birth of punk in the UK and America (and its aftermath), should check out the show of posters and fliers at the Steven Kasher Gallery titled Rude and Reckless: Punk/Post-Punk Graphics, 1976-82. Divided into two sections — the promotional material created by the music labels and the gig fliers cranked out the venues (by hand, with a xerox machine from the looks of them) — it’s...

SCENE TITLE: Shakespeare on the Subway
It’s a crowded L train from Brooklyn. Suddenly from the end of the carriage, a guy in his 30′s starts speaking at the top of his voice. It’s hard to make out what he’s saying, but everyone assumes he’s crazy. At the opposite end of the carriage, he is then answered by a second man speaking loudly also, and we realise they’re reciting a Shakespeare scene. The two figures start moving through the...
