Avenue C is for .... Coco Chanel?

On Avenue C, a newish Coco Chanel ad on the Cemusa bus shelter near Sixth Street lights up the evening...



Across the Avenue sits the Lower East Side II Consolidation (NYCHA) development ...



Anyway, first time that I can recall a Chanel ad on Avenue C... and with such large buys, do the ad folks/Chanel marketing executives have any idea where these things are being placed? Or does someone think that Avenue C is a hot spot for Chanel fans out and about on a weekend night?

P.S.

On the flip side of Chanel ad, a little Kate Moss for M21-goers who may be tempted to buy a $1,000 bag...

these two particular ads have been going up in phonebooths and bus shelters across the LES.

You need to learn about advertising

The folks paying $10K a month for that ugly 8th St box with a hot tub on the roof need something to look at while waiting for the bus to Bergdorf.
