I was on my was to Beyond The Streets when I passed by a vacant lot, and noticed this fun Pink Bird which had been spray-painted on an adjacent wall. The tag says “Nico,” but I can’t find a street artist with that tag in the Google. So, whatever. This is on Kent Street just north of North 7th Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
On This Date, July 18th, in 1988: Nico, (born Christa Päffgen) the German-born actress, fashion model, Andy Warhol Cohort and a former singer with The Velvet Underground died of a cerebral hemorrhage after hitting her head when falling off of her bike in Ibiza, where she was on holiday with her son. She was 49 years old.
