The eighth cycle of Centre-fuge artwork is now upon us. But, as previously reported, this round is much more ambitious, and carries a partnership with the New Museum. “Influx in Flux,” as it’s known, is part of the second Ideas City Festival. It includes painting the usual mid-block trailer on East First (Collin Scotese, Cruz, Demer, Elle, Mor, Turtle Caps), the empty containers near One and One (N’DA, Yuri Velez, Cram Concepts Claw Money), and fences inside First Park (Sheryo & the Yok, Ray Smith & Sofia Maldonado, Cre8tive YouTH*ink).

As a bonus, project co-founder Pebbles Russell is recreating a Mike Hamm piece for the eastern end cap. Fitting, since Hamm is the actual inspiration behind Centre-fuge.

How deep must this corner pit sink before the city starts paying attention? For months, the sidewalk at Orchard and Delancey has been gradually dipping below street level. Torrential downpours and excessive heat certainly exacerbate the situation. Our last depth measurement came in at five inches, and by all accounts, a liability waiting to collect. […]

Looks Like Little Muenster is Closing Its Grilled Cheese Spot on Stanton Street

While one grilled cheese joint begins business on Allen Street, another is sunsetting. Little Muenster is seemingly in the twilight of its tenure at 100 Stanton Street. Melted fortune, if you will. That much is clear by Misrahi’s tombstone signage sitting above the entryway. We reached out to the Little Muenster and received the following […]

We’re told that Abe’s Antiques is simply masquerading as a retail setting for the upcoming ABC television series Forever. Apparently the filming crews will return to number 154 later this week to capture more scenes. For […]
