Pink Thing of The Day: B-Side Bar Pink Neon Sign

I haven’t been inside a bar since March, or probably before that, but I pass the B-Side Bar, located at 204 Avenue B located between 12th and 13th Streets, many times each week on my walks. I always love to see this Pink Neon Sign glowing day or night, and I finally stopped to snap a pic, because it was way overdue to be featured as a Pink Thing.

I took the photo from two angles, trying to avoid as much street reflection as possible, although I do love the reflection of the sign itself against the glass! B-Side has curbside seating, if you feel like stopping by for a cocktail!

SacSix is a Miami born artist now living in NYC. His #SidewalksAndIcons street art series explores pop culture icons, past and present, and their relationship with the streets of New York. This image of the late Amy Winehouse as an enhaloed Statue of Liberty was spotted on a boiler truck parked on Avenue B, across the street from Tompkins Square Park. Get a detailed look at the piece in the photo below.

The Mystery of The Green Monster Hand

It’s been a few weeks now since I first noticed the Green Monster Hand giving what looks like some kind of a two-finger salute of unknown meaning (I don’t think the fingers are spread apart enough to make it a proper peace sign, but I could be wrong). I can’t say when exactly it went up, but considering I pass by this block (Avenue B between 13th and 14th Streets) almost daily, I think it’s relatively new.

I like it.

Photographed on November 8th, 2016 at 8 PM, near the corner of 14th Street and Avenue B. Looks like somebody knew something we didn’t.

Update 11/23/17: I just found out, Thanks to Instagram, that the artist is Matt Starr!

Mechanical Wasp Mural By Ludo

This cool mural of what I’d call a Mechanical Wasp (though I don’t know the mural’s official title, or even if it has one) is painted on the side of the apartment building at 62 Avenue B, near 5th Street, in the East Village. It was created by the artist Ludo for the Lo Man Art Festival in August of 2015.
