Jerry Seinfeld is Street Art!

What I like about this wheat-paste — by Brooklyn Street Artist Sac Six — is that it’s actually a clever mash-up of the famous Bob Gruen photo of John Lennon in his New York City T-Shirt, with the head of comedian Jerry Seinfeld. The pigeon on Jerry/John’s shoulder utters a catch phrase from a memorable episode of Sienfeld, which makes this a quintessentially NYC bit of ephemera.

Pink Thing of the Day: Pink Poodle Book Ends

A & G Merchandise is a fun home furnishings store that’s just across the street from Sea Thai restaurant in Williamsburg, and Geoffrey and I often use it as our meet-up destination when we are heading to Sea from different points of departure. Recently, I arrived a few minutes before G, so I had time to browse a bit and see what’s new.

Pink Poodle Book End

Check out this pair of Pink Poodle Book Ends! They look super retro and would be perfect as part of any Midcentury Modern decor! Made of heavy cast iron, one of these could easily serve as an impromptu bludgeoning device if you were being chased around your house by a mad man and didn’t have time to get to your kitchen knives.

The pair sells for $69 and you can buy them at This Link!

We set out on a very satisfying Street Art Safari this past weekend in Williamsburg, Brooklyn — a great neighborhood to in which to capture the Big Game, such as this really vibrant Cobra Mural by the artist known as Woodz. This mural is located on the south side of North 8th Street just east of Berry Street.
