Nestled within the vibrant streets of the East Village in NYC, a whimsical wonder awaits those who know where the Neat Things are. The Pink Fountain of Stuyvesant Town, hidden within the charming enclave of Stuyvesant Oval, casts a spell on all who stumble upon its mesmerizing hues. As the sun dips below the horizon during the summer months, this magical fountain springs to life, radiating an enchanting spectrum of delicate pinks and deep purples. Living close to such a mystical marvel is nothing short of pure luck, a treasure to be cherished and celebrated. Continue reading Pink Thing of The Day: The Pink Fountain of Stuyvesant Town

I can’t believe that Pride Month is coming to a close already, when it should really be celebrated all year! Wah! You still have time to celebrate Pride with many activities, including the Parade, planned for today, June 26th. Get all the details at This Link!
This Mural, which went up on June 15th, 2022, was located on First Avenue near 16th Street on the front window of the Stuyvesant Town Leasing Office, but was taken down in early August.

While Dr. Martin Luther King’s actual birthday was January 15th, the US honors and remembers him on the third Monday in January for a Federal Holiday known as Martin Luther King Day. It is the only such holiday that honors an Africa-American. We need to change that. Please celebrate the work of Dr. King today by being kind to your neighbor, whatever that means to you. One of MLK‘s best known quotes was projected on an apartment building at 14th Street and First Avenue over the past week and I stopped to take this photograph so that I could share it here.
Seasons Beatings, Dear Readers. Is the sending of Christmas / Holiday cards something you enjoy doing? I generally do. I don’t think I’ve missed a year of mailing out dozens of cards to friends and family since I moved to NYC 32 years ago. But this year it’s been difficult to rustle-up the energy to get the card-sending thing together. Confession: that’s mostly due to my lack of access to a printer for creating the address labels, and the fact that my hands don’t work quite as well as they used to for holding a pen for hours on end.

When I arrived for the start of my morning commute at the bus stop near the corner of Avenue C and 14th Street, adjacent to Stuyvesant Town, I encountered a lovely surprise in the form of this psychedelic tape mural stretching across the back glass of the bus shelter. The geometric design by E.S. Klein, also known as Tape Artist, (@tapeartist) must have gone up prior to this past holiday weekend. I love it!
The multi-color design is meticulously applied and really brightens up the bus shelter. My guess is that Klein put this up over the course of couple of late night sessions.
I hope that the City and the MTA lets it stay up.
If you want to add the Stained Glass Tape Mural to your next Urban Street Art Safari, here is the Bus Shelter’s location.
Update: As of Friday 10/13 at 7:30 AM, This Mural Has Been Removed. Sadness!
