Wheatpasting Weekends: Walking, Walking, and Walking.
May 2, 2011 § 2 Comments
This weekend was a super busy one packed from end to end with artsy goodness. On Friday, Casey was in the Trickery Show at Paradigm, Saturday was the PIFA Street Festival, and Sunday I spent the entire day in New York. We walked, and walked, and walked, and at one point in the day I swore I was sleeping while walking, but I love New York so much regardless of all the pains and treks you have to take to get to wherever you’re going. I’ve always admired the city and dreamt of putting up pastes there but kinda shy’d away from it because of all the people, cops and just whatever, but this time I was determined to get something up. We walked around Brooklyn all day, in what must have been some kind of business district because I saw NOTHING of interest there. We meandered over the Brooklyn Bridge and ended up heading to the Lower East Side which was a little more up my ally, lots of dilapidated buildings with boarded up windows and what not. We strolled by a few places and walked by a few spots and then was like you know what, I’m just going to do it, right here, right now. So that’s how the read one went up on Delancy and Ludlow. Then the Gears paste went up a few blocks away. Nerve-wracking as hell, but worth it. If you’re ever in the area give it a peep and let me know how it’s holding up.
