Olek Yarn Cart Spotted on Rivington Street
Most of Olek’s latest yarn-carts have been spotted in the East Village, from Tompkins to Cooper Square. The somewhat functional creations even made for some comical street theater. Indeed, homeless dudes were spotted with the grocery carts, scavenging the neighborhood for goods.
Another such crocheted shopping cart was recently chained to the Clemente Soto Velez Center scaffolding at the corner of Rivington and Suffolk Street. This one sports opposing color variations on her trademark camouflage pattern. So far, it has yet to become a depository for street trash. But that will probably change in due course.
UPDATE: We spoke too soon. Here’s the same cart not a day later…
Thanks to KT for the photos.
