This Street Art Tag of a Silver Sphere sporting Dark Shades and a Protruding Tongue can be seen around the Chelsea Gallery District neighborhood adorning various surfaces, from the above mail box to a van I saw parked just a few blocks from where this photo was taken, at the corner of Tenth Avenue and 20th Street. If anyone knows the artist or what this tag is called, please leave it in the comments – thanks!
The IAC Building, which is the headquarters for InterAcive Corp, sits on the Hudson River-facing lot on Eleventh Avenue between 18th and 19th Streets. I sometimes pass it when I am gallery hopping and when it is lit up at night it is quite breathtaking to behold.
Besides the fact that the building itself is one of the most gorgeous examples of modern architecture in Manhattan, I am also quite charmed by the block-long series of video screens in the building’s lobby, which are visible from Eleventh Avenue. The visuals change all the time, but on a night last fall I snapped few photos of this pink and green set of abstract images.
When you get up close to the glass, you can see it is imbedded with little black dots, which I imagine help to shade the interior and add a dimension of privacy during the day.
I love this building.

There are a few places scattered around the city that I frequent, and each does something special with the simple culinary pleasure that is the hamburger. Now, I am adding a new favorite to that list.
I saw a couple of these Homer Made To Stay stickers — where the “O” in Homer is a Pink Frosted Sprinkled Donut — on 11th Avenue between 18th and 20th Streets when I was in that area recently. I can’t find any reference to its meaning or creator on the Google. And so, it remains a mystery until someone leaves an enlightening message in the comments; which means you’ll be waiting a long, long time.
While Late Confessions, the new exhibit by identical twin graffiti artists How & Nosm, opened over two weeks ago, it took that long for us to make it to the exhibit due to NYC’s recent streak of inclement weather and circumstances beyond our control. We must “confess,” however, that it was worth the wait, because this “must see” show is nothing short of fantastic!
