Recently I’ve made a few short trips back to New York.
Vaping: still in.
Neck tattoos on mannequins: still in.
Fixed gears: still in.
Curry Row: still there. Not sure why we were always Panna II people, as I’ve met people who always opted for Milon instead. And has anyone been to the downstairs spots?
I was surprised to see UFO and seemingly Sace!? on this East Village-based delivery truck. I’m not super up on NYC graffiti, but if that really is a Sace piece (the late artist, Dash Snow), then it’s at least 7+ years old, or is a tribute? Or maybe I’m failing at reading it.
There’s still room to grow on the east side of Manhattan, surprisingly. This is the site of a former Con Edison plant, and here’s a Times piece about it from 3 years ago.
Meanwhile, back in Philadelphia.
The legendary Dan Deacon performed in my studio’s building last night.
