Sonni's Boom Box leaves East Fourth Street

Now that the water main project on East Fourth Street between Second Avenue and the Bowery is complete, the construction crates have been retired...




Yesterday, workers hauled away Sonni's Boom Box and the other work commissioned through FABnyc's ArtUp program this past summer... Keith Schweitzer, director of public art for FABnyc, shot the following video yesterday...

Too much? I can't be the only guy who thought the dark stretch of sidewalk those containers created at night was pretty sketchy.
Still, I'd rather look at their colorful facades when walking up the Bowery, than at the blank wall behind them.

These containers provided shelter and latrines to homeless, alcoholic, junkie, crusties, and their pit bulls. but I'm glad it's gone, it really smelled like piss there.

I hated walking past those! Worst smell in the village.

Maybe a colorful mural could be painted on that blank wall.
