Murals N' Me In NYC.... Part One

OK, long story short, about a week ago Tolch and I were talking and I mentioned some big Run DMC mural I'd seen driving around Astoria, Queens while looking for a comic book store. He told me I should have had my picture taken in front of it, and that I should have my picture taken in front of all murals I pass, in hopes of creating a coffee table book called Murals N' Me.

This was a really stupid idea, so when Eddie and I went for lunch the other day and I had my camera with me, I figured it was time to beat that dumb idea to death.

So without further ado, the results of a few hours worth of wandering in the Village and Alphabet City areas of Manhattan. I was told afterwards we were lucky we didn't get shot in Alphabet City, but I have a feeling that the area is a lot safer than it used to be. Sure, there were a lot of projects and some weird bits and pieces here and there but it was broad daylight and there was nothing threatening save for the odd hobo or two.

I'm particularly impressed with the 'Bad Pussies' picture. It's just.... odd.

Interesting murals. You have way to much time on your hands.

Yeah, I need a job.

You need to start a band called Bad Pussies, too. That's great for the unemployed and gives hope to those downtrodden souls that would agree with that sentiment about poorly-behaved felines.
