Pop Culture-themed Tile Mosaics by the French Street Artist known as Invader can be found all over the city, if you know to look up, and aren’t always staring at your fucking phone.

This one of a diminutive Spiderman, captured in the process of scaling the side of a building, adorns the front façade of what used to be a bank, located on the southwest corner of 2nd Avenue and St. Marks Place in NYCs east village. I believe it has been there since late 2015.

There’s cheap but reliable BBQ restaurant just across the street. And just around the corner to the right, you’ll see these familiar buildings.

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Skull Wallet!


Gee, Your Cash Looks Terrific!

Oh wow, how fashionable will all your hot cash look folded into this rad pink wallet with skulls all over it? Answer: VERY fashionable. Not that money ever goes out of vogue. Sadly, I have no idea where you can get this thing, but Hot Topic or any skeevy accessory joint on St Mark’s Place are probably a couple of good places to start looking! Pink Wallet!
