This little dude, who I am just going to call Phil, is by a street artist also named Phil. He resides in a derelict Fire Alarm Box mounted on a light pole at the northwest corner of West 21st Street and 10th Avenue, in the Chelsea Gallery District. The only other post I was able to find on Phil leads me to believe this piece has been on the street since 2011. That’s a long ass time in NYC Street Art Life.
With his purple hoodie and his boom-box, Phil is maybe a little like the Roaming Gnome of Chelsea. Or maybe not.
It looks like he dropped some green. If you have any information on the Phil who made this art, please leave it in the comments. Thanks!
I see this truck — which I affectionately call The Pot Truck — parked around my neighborhood all the time. It sells THC-infused hard candy (in the form of lollipops) and most likely other types of green things. Today It was parked at 14th Street and First Ave right by Stuyvesant Town, so I spotted it right away as I got off the bus. As I took this photo with my iPad, the proprietor, shall we say, walked around the side of the truck and made this friendly gesture at me! If you squint, you can just make out the phone number you need to call to contact the friendly people in the Pot Truck. Apparently, they deliver.
