Painting it black at the B Bar

Last week, we noticed that someone had painted over the mural on the side of early 1990s Bowery gentrifier B Bar at East Fourth Street...

Before!

[January 2012]

Last weekend!



We didn't hear back from a B Bar rep... we had some questions about what would replace the mural and all that...we figured it had something to do with the possible sale of the adjacent building that the wall belongs to...

Meanwhile, a reader noted that this ad for "The Voice" is now in place on part of the wall...

That's horrible, the mural made the whole block.

I just noticed it this evening and wanted to let you guys know! That mural was beautiful and vibrant- I can't believe no one appreciates that kind of art/ advertising- like the gross, generic, boring Hollister wall that disrespectfully moved in and obliterated the amazing DKNY ad on B'way and Houston.
