Workers Are Assembling the New Bowery Graffiti Wall Encasement

Posted December 22, 2014 at 5:32 am

The oft-photographed, paint-covered concrete slab at Bowery and East Houston – colloquially referred to as the “graffiti wall” – is going into hiding again. Os Gemeos’ mural from 2009 had been exposed for about a month earlier this fall, essentially as a reminder that art still existed here during construction activities next door. Workers have […]

Goldman Properties Wooing Retail to Incomplete 2-Story Building at the ‘Four Corners of Downtown’

Posted December 5, 2014 at 5:36 am

Leasing banners. A sight not seen at 76 East Houston in recent memory. But so it goes. The new two-story commercial structure at the northeast corner of Elizabeth Street is nowhere near completion. In fact, the Goldman Properties project site – formerly Billy’s Antiques – has been pretty quiet in recent weeks. Not too much […]

Six Inches of Drama Exposed at the Former Billy’s Antiques on East Houston

Last modified November 11, 2014 at 12:11 pm

As of this week, we’re starting to see the first signs of real progress at 76 East Houston. The tiny corner lot – previously headquarters of Billy’s Antiques for over two decades – is soon to sprout a two-story commercial complex. But there is currently some ongoing drama to unpack. You may recall that the […]

Os Gemeos Mural on the Bowery is Back Behind the Plywood

Posted October 16, 2014 at 5:10 am

So much for the Os Gemeos mural remaining in public view on the Bowery. Contractors erected another perimeter fence on Monday as construction continues on the adjacent plot. The mural from 2009 had been re-unveiled in mid-September for a “limited time only.” Likely as a reminder that the graffiti wall was still relevant. That timeframe […]

Hidden Os Gemeos Mural from 2009 Returns to the Bowery Graffiti Wall

Posted October 1, 2014 at 6:00 am

Yesterday evening, the Bowery graffiti wall reverted to its circa 2009 state. Property owner Goldman Properties re-unveiled the Os Gemeos mural that has been obscured for the last five years. Scaffolding and blue tarps fell away to reveal that the color is still very much intact. The artwork of twins Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo will […]

Hidden Os Gemeos Mural on the Bowery Graffiti Wall Returns Next Week

Posted September 25, 2014 at 9:19 am

The Tony Goldman-owned graffiti wall on the Bowery will be re-revealed next week, despite the ongoing construction at the Billy’s Antiques project site. But with a twist. The original concrete slab, last painted by street artists Os Gemeos in 2009, will make a surprise return next week for a limited time. According to the Goldman […]

Bowery Graffiti Wall Enclosure Removed; 2009 Os Gemeos Mural Visible

Posted July 24, 2014 at 6:08 am

For the last few days, construction workers have dismantled the two-story paneled enclosure surrounding the Bowery graffiti wall. Now the original concrete slab – made famous by Keith Haring in summer 1982 – is publicly visible for the first time in five years. The Os Gemeos mural was the last commissioned piece before the art-vertecture […]

The Bowery Graffiti Wall is Being Torn Apart Right Now

Posted July 22, 2014 at 5:54 am

As construction progresses at 76 East Houston, the adjacent graffiti wall suffers. That two-story paneled enclosure of the original concrete slab is currently being stripped of its artwork (that of Cope2). You can easily view the damage from behind the sidewalk bridge or via the gratuitous blogger portals. Shattered pieces of the mural now litter the […]

Rendering Reveals Glimpse of 2-Story Building to Rise at Billy’s Antiques Lot

Posted July 2, 2014 at 6:05 am

With the new plywood enclosure at the Bowery graffiti wall comes a rendering of the two-story building we can expect on the adjacent lot. As previously reported, a full city block of scaffolding and fencing appeared on East Houston over the weekend. The replacement real estate itself was responsible, at least partially, for the demise […]

Bowery Graffiti Wall Now Obstructed by Scaffolding from Construction of 2-Story Building

Posted June 30, 2014 at 9:15 am

COPE2 just received the ultimate diss at the Bowery graffiti wall, and it’s not even art world related. In fact, a new sidewalk bridge and plywood shed related to the construction site next door now blocks three-quarters of the high-profile canvas. And probably will until the new two-story building is complete. The estate of Tony […]
