LoHo Realty Ghost Advert Above Attorney Street
Dream Nail transitioning to G TECTS isn’t the only noticeable change down at the corner of Delancey and Attorney Streets. Indeed, below the crumbling-but-no-less-classic Z100 signage at 176 Delancey, another ghost ad mural was recently uncovered when the Comprehensive Center for Rehabilitation removed their banners. That of LoHo Realty.

Now re-exposed to the elements, inbound motorists from the Williamsburg Bridge are again barraged with pitches of making a home on the Lower East Side. Or, in their own words, to “live here, play here.”
LoHo Realty first commissioned the painting of this mural back in the spring of 2005. It is the work of street artist Meres One, who was the force behind the all-but-defunct 5Pointz Aerosol Art Center in Long Island City for ten years. That institution, as the New York Times reported the other day, is likely to fall in favor of new development.
