With the concrete skeleton hulking behind, the plywood fence at the Nativity Mission condo site on Forsyth Street now has a Vandal’s touch. No, we’re not talking about that bullshit Bowery restaurant. Rather, the dapper character work of street artist Nick Walker.

The Bristol-based artist last week stenciled a one-story version of the Vandal pouring out a bucket of love (i.e. red paint).

Let’s see how long it takes before this Vandal gets a taste of its own. Indeed, the piece outside The DL (a tourist trap for photos) gets tagged so often we can’t keep track anymore.

As previously reported, 204 Forsyth Street is undergoing a luxury conversion. The longstanding Nativity Mission school – an 87-year veteran – was razed for this.
