The "sticker bandit" of the Upper West Side is still hard at work placing "This is Neighborhood Rot" stickers on vacant UWS storefronts, and now the mission has a manifesto: "I’m starting with New York’s Upper West Side, stickering the long-vacant spaces with reminders of the blight, because even worse than their being ugly is their being invisible." The sticker bandit is selling the "This is Neighborhood?" stickers for anyone who wants to get in on the fun. Hmm, we have some ideas for where to set up a storefront? [West Side Rag; previously]
