Hanksy Sticker Scavenger Hunt Begins Today! [Winners Announced]

Posted on: November 5th, 2012 at 11:12 am by

Due to the wrath of Hurricane Sandy, Hanksy’s show at the Krause Gallery on Orchard was postponed to this Thursday (November 8). Dubbed “Young Puns 2: Now with More Pun,” the exhibit will feature a plethora of his pun penned pleasures, and coincides with his street-level involvement in the forthcoming New York Comedy Festival.

To mark the occasion, we’ve teamed up with the comical street artist on a new scavenger hunt. Starting today, you can scour the neighborhood for specially-made Hanksy stickers and enter the unique codes on our website for a chance to win limited edition prizes! We hear that the slaps will be within a few blocks of the Krause Gallery…

If, in the early ’80s, Toyo Tsuchiya’s ambition was to be remembered as a serious New York City documentary photographer, he could not have picked a more overlooked and neglected piece of landscape than the Forsyth and Rivington Street area, between Delancey and Houston.

Health Department Shutters ‘The Skinny’ on Orchard Street

It’s lights out for The Skinny bar on Orchard Street. Nearly three months after pissing off (or, on) Hell Square with its Christmas “Jingle Hell’s” holiday stunt, the rowdy nightclub was subject to a city inspection yesterday. The Department of Health came down to 174 Orchard Street and ordered the establishment shut. The requisite yellow […]

First Rendering of the 14-Story Hotel Rising at Vacant Eldridge Street Lot

What the neighborhood doesn’t need is another large-scale hotel. But that’s precisely what’s happening at 79 Eldridge Street, where construction last week commenced on a new context-killing fourteen-story lodge. And now we have our first sight of what to expect from this long-vacant lot. It’s amazing how these illustrations completely gussy up neighborhoods to make […]

As of this week, its token neon signage has gone dark. Shadows are now cast on the sidewalk below. Demolition is nigh. This latest action […]
