There is a Gigantic Penis Painted on this Broome Street Building

Posted on: December 25th, 2017 at 8:30 am by

Yesterday afternoon. Christmas eve. Street artist Carolina Falkholt took to Broome Street for an epic mural.

She painted a throbbing, veiny penis on the east-facing wall of 303 Broome Street. It’s the Samy Mahfar-owned building with Louie & Chan club-restaurant on the ground level. The big dick is erect, measuring four stories in length, and there to satisfy.

“I have never heard so much laughter and seen so many happy faces behind my back when painting as for today doing this wall on Broome Street,” Falkholt noted on Instagram.

The choice location is apt, too, as the nearby intersection of Eldridge Street is known to display dangling dildos.

Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal.
