Finally, there’s bright spot on this dismal end of year season. Pearl River Mart, everyone’s favorite Asian Imports Store, has reopened as a Pop-Up at 395 Broadway. Oh, Happy Day. This space will become the store’s permanent location after a brief shuttering in February 2017 to allow for further construction on the interior.

I made an excited initial visit to the new store and can report that, while it is now much smaller than its previous 30,000 SF, multi-level home, this new space has many of the items you love to peruse, shop for, and give as gifts including ceramics and tableware, tea sets, slippers, brocade satin purses and novelty tote bags, trinkets, cosmetics and of course incense and tiny statuary.

“Don’t Call Me Baby” Mural

Don't Call Me Baby
Photo By Gail

I wish I had gotten to this mural before the D-Bag taggers did. Don’t Call Me Baby by Baron Von Fancy is part of #TheNewAllen murals project on the store fronts along Allen Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. You can see many of them if you take the M15 Bus route south of Houston Street!

NOTE: Since this photo was taken, the mural has been repainted with identical text, but with different florescent colors highlighting each word.

Mural of a Guy Who Could Be Caesar Chavez in Chinatown

This mural depicting what appears to be the likeness of Union leader and labor organizer Caesar Chavez can be found on a building located on Layette Street between Canal and Howard.

However, despite the close resemblance to Chavez, the group of musicians clearly visible above his head makes me think that this man might actually be a famous musician. Sadly, I could find nothing about this mural on the Google, believe it or not.

I snapped this photo of a Danielle Mastrion Portrait on Lafayette Street just above Canal in Chinatown while I was on Jury Duty earlier this week. You can see some remnants of snow from last weekend’s storm at the bottom of the picture.
