Pink Thing of The Day: Exterior of Pink Restaurant

I’ve been hearing about Pietro Nolita since it opened (a few years ago at this point), because it is an Italian Restaurant downtown that’s Pink on the exterior and interior. I’ve always meant to visit, of course — because: Pink Restaurant — but it’s not in my neighborhood and I’m lazy, so I’ve never see the pinkness before in person, until now.

The fact that Pietro Nolita had completely fallen off my radar made it that much sweeter to literally stumble upon it last week, as I walked home to the East Village from a doctor’s appointment in the Financial District and decided to shake up my route. Isn’t it adorable? Who wouldn’t want stop in and check it out?

I love the details they put into it, including flower boxes bursting with Pink Silk Chrysanthemums.

Popular street artist Hektad has even contributed a flourish of his signature heart art.

And you might remember these little guys from a previous post! Ah, the Pinkness.

Located at 174 Elizabeth Street, Pietro Nolito is open during lockdown from Thursday through Sunday, Noon to 8 PM for Take Out and Delivery. I Promise that once it Reopens I Will Eat There and File a Full Report!

Pink Thing of The Day: Buff Monster Box Truck!

The Covid Life walks have lead me to all sorts of unexpected, magical discoveries! That might have something to do with the fact that I am now regularly exploring streets that, three months ago, I did not know existed. Case in point: Columbia Street. “Where The Fuck is That” you ask? It’s on the LES near Delancey, and walking north it eventually turns into Avenue D. But it was on Columbia Street,  that I saw this box truck idling in front of a grocery store, bearing Buff Monster’s awesome pink tag, along with his signature Mr. Melty character. Sweet.

Pink Thing of The Day: Villainess Neon Sign

Villainess, accord to their Instagram Page, is a “Secondhand designer black clothing store and events destination located in the East Village.” The exact address is 181 Avenue B, and they appear be temporarily shuttered due to the Covid Life. It seems appropriate then, that their glorious Pink Neon Sign glows on, behind bars, so to speak.

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Spray Painted Head of a Warrior

This pink spray paint rendering of what I interpret to be the Head of a Mayan Warrior is tagged on a brick wall on East 10th Street between Avenues B and C. I was originally going to include it in this past Tuesday’s post on My East Village Covid Experience, but thought better of that, because I needed a Pink Thing for this week. Any port in a storm.

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Elvis Brass Knuckles Ring

This is one of those,’Yes, It Exists’ moments,  for sure. To find pink brass knuckles is not so odd (Google it). But to find a Pink Elvis Brass Knuckles Ring (also called a four-finger ring) well, that makes you sit up and take notice (i.e. snap a photo with your iPhone). I saw this unique piece of personal adornment at the Scope NY Art Fair and, apparently, I was so overcome with delight that I completely forgot to make a note of the artist’s name or the gallery whose booth I was visiting at the time. My bad!

Pink Thing of The Day: Abandoned Baby Carrier

I suppose it could have been worse: whoever this delightful Pink Polka Dot Baby Carrier belonged to could have put it in their vehicle, and driven away without their baby!

Another possibility is that the owner had purchased a new carrier for their baby, and thus left this one out on the planter’s edge for someone else to pick up. But in this Covid-contaminated world, who would feel safe doing that?

Answer: no one.

Pink Thing of the Day: Crushed Pink Toner Cartridge

This random piece of literal Street Art was spotted by me while I was wandering around the lower east side taking photos for This Post. All I saw was a flash of bright pink in the street, so I just got down in it with the iPhone and took a snap. It wasn’t untilI I arrived back home and took a good look at the photo that I recognized this dazzling mess as a crushed toner cartridge with the magenta toner dust sprayed artfully across the blacktop. Happy accidents: I welcome them.

Pink Thing of The Day: Buff Monster’s Mister Melty Figure

Do you like Buff Monster? I sure do.  If you are familiar at all with this world-famous street artist’s extensive body of work, then you know that his key creation is Mr. Melty, which is an anthropomorphic ice cream cone. This Hot Pink version of Mister Melty was a limited edition that was selling in the Clutter Magazine booth at last years Five Points Festival for about $275, I think. That sounds like a big chunk of change, but consider that this piece is also a highly-collectible work of art, and, you know, it’s kind of a bargain. Plus: Pink.

Oh, what fun it is to spot treasures in the trash. I can’t help but wonder what decided the sad fate of this very fun-looking pink toy car, whose official name is the Disney Minnie Mouse Hot Rod Coupe Ride-On Toy by Kid Trax. While this polka dot marvel does not look terribly Hot Rod-like to me, it sure is a sweet ride. Let’s check it out!

This car features a Reclining Passenger Seat, and the dual side mirror appears to be in good working condition.
