Revisiting the 2-Story Building that Will Rise at the Old Billy’s Antiques

Posted April 4, 2014 at 5:52 am

Walking by the lot previously known as Billy’s Antiques yesterday, we spotted a crew of architects assessing the area. Blueprints and other documents in hand.

Posted October 21, 2013 at 1:23 pm

It’s a familiar sight outside the Bowery graffiti wall. An assembly of booms waiting for the order to whitewash what Revok and Pose put here back in July. It’ll be sad to see their piece painted into obscurity. Meanwhile, we’ve confirmed that the next artist to grace the world famous wall is Swoon. The job […]
