Comment of the Day

"People can decide for themselves whether this is great art or not, but I just hope the New Museum is not pretending that they're doing the neighborhood artists any favors. This "festival" is just inviting gentrification dreams by outsider developers and architects, and giving property owners big money ideas. I've lived here since the days when no one else wanted to, and never had to worry about eviction until the NM moved across the street, but now I've been in court for a year. Many Bowery artists are just barely hanging on, and this kind of faux art attention is nothing but bad news for those of us who live here. Thanks, but no thanks."?BoweryBoy [Bowery Roll-Down Gates Get Painted as Part of May Festival]
