File this as a first. Cornices are usually the domain of pre-war tenement buildings. Part of what carries the old world charm into the new era. It’s usually five or six stories above the pavement … not sitting on it, nor in the twenty-first century. Last week, we stumbled upon this very unique delivery at […]

Last modified February 13, 2015 at 12:04 am

The citywide “Vision Zero” safety initiative might be a de Blasio priority, but it still has a long way to go in protecting the locals.

Prolific street artist Bradley Theodore returned to Kenmare Street yesterday to impart another mural evoking unique representations of prominent fashion figures.
