Today is the official public unveiling of the Little Italy street art destination along Mulberry Street. “The Art of Comedy,” an initiative sponsored by the New York Comedy Festival and Vandalog, brought the comical musings of well known graffiti artists to the neighborhood – Ron English, Hanksy, and Gilf. An “art crawl” had originally been planned for November 3, but was pushed to noon today because of Hurricane Sandy. Meet outside Caffe Roma at 385 Broome.

The ultimate goal of this partnership, according to the Little Italy Merchant Association, is for the corridor between Canal and Broome to become an outdoor gallery of sorts. This is essentially the inaugural exhibition.

The Max Fish Cigarette Makes a Comeback, But Not in the Way You Think

The iconic Max Fish marquee cigarette is most certainly making a comeback, as previously reported. But probably not in the way you think. In the Orchard Street reboot, the illuminated ornament now resides on the wall beside the entrance. With some glittery accompaniment. Placing the twenty-five-year-old piece indoors makes sense, though. Max Fish owner Ulli Rimkus […]

The very first customer was a deli in Queens.  17 Cleveland Place was no-man’s land […]
