Chico's Avenue A mural neutered

Over the weekend, Chico's "spay/neuter" mural on Avenue A near 11th Street...



...got painted over...






One of the painters said they were putting up an ad for an NBA video game...

That mural always made me smile--even the terrifyingly enormous pit bull.

would prefer to see those bitches than the NBA bitches replacing that mural

in another related thought:
just saw that Simpsons episode -- In the Name of the Grandfather, where they went to Ireland just to find that the traditional pubs have been pushed out by commercialism and yuppies. This is pretty much what has happened to the EV/NYC. FOX should do an episode on that, also.

I loved Chico's Mural too. What a loss.

I can't believe they destroyed this mural. I loved that the cat looked just like my cat Charlotte.

Noo, that was one of my favorites! I loved coming around the corner and seeing that cat...made me happy every time. :(

I wish that I had a better photo of the original mural. The one shot that I found is too distant... I know that I have another one somewhere.... And I wonder if Chico knows this...

MikeM said...

Wow, seriously? People like that thing? Eye of the beholder I guess...
