East Village Alert!

New, 16 comments

Could the city or some other mysterious agent be preparing to strip the East Village's lampposts of the life's work of Jim "Mosaic Man" Power? EV Grieve notices tape around one of the mosaics on St. Marks and the writing "mosaic work to be removed." Grieve points to a blog post written by the Mosaic Man headlined "bad day......MOSAIC"S to be covered and REMOVED after 26 years," but it also might be a scare tactic to drum up donations. Either way, our fragile hearts can't take this! [EV Grieve]
