Paintball Gun Graffiti Art [Video]

Posted on: July 29th, 2011 at 6:28 am by

Is paintball graffiti art something that could gain traction here in New York City?  Probably not, given people don’t take too kindly to dudes wearing masks and toting guns.

Nevertheless, this awesome little video sheds some light on the street art phenomenon.  We watch a pair of artists painting murals of two pop-culture badasses – Johnny Knoxville and Dave Grohl – all at the expense of Mountain Dew UK.  Just ignore the plug for a better viewing experience.

This despite the ongoing litigation over the contested few parcels on the backside of Extell’s One Manhattan Square. It’s certainly a […]

St. Jerome’s on Rivington Street is Dead, for Real This Time

Okay, so now it’s really happened. Again. The reincarnated St. Jerome’s on Rivington Street – also known as Rivington F+B – is officially kaput. This past Wednesday was its final night in business.

MTA Brushes off Vehement Local Opposition to ‘Gracias Mama’ Entrance on Rutgers Street

The MTA sees nothing wrong with having a restaurant entrance mere feet from a bustling subway station. Specifically that of Gracias Mama, whose principals (Koorosh Bakhtiar and Nima Garos) are trying to alter their method of operation, which could become a harbinger of overcrowding in a small area.
