Mosaic Man Jim Power was hard at work yesterday, adding a new piece to the sidewalk at St. Mark's Place and Avenue A. It says "Welcome to the East Village" with a big F.U. middle finger, a mixed message--perhaps to the neighborhood's newcomers and tourists? (Not sure how Crif Dogs is involved.)
It's reminiscent of the classic "Welcome to New York, Now Go Home" t-shirt, which is impossible to find these days.
Be sure to give your support to the Mosaic Trail. You can donate via Paypal and other avenues. Says Jim's sign by the big middle finger, "Without your donations this project will not survive winter."
