Portal No. 1 repaired on Avenue C; two more on the way

Last week, we noted that someone had vandalized Portal No. 1 on East Seventh Street and Avenue C... EVG reader Steven Matthews lets us know that it has been restored...



Meanwhile, the creators of the portals, Nicolina and Brazilian artist Perola Bonfanti, just started work on Portal No. 4 (there will be 13 in total) set to debut somewhere in the East Village this summer ... they passed along a sneak preview...







It will be the portal "of the material world, nature and sexuality."

Portal No. O is on East Third Street just east of Second Avenue. The portals are interactive, and by scanning the QR code on each one, "you will begin the journey to uncover their mystery."

Here's the website for the portals. Here's the 13 Portals Facebook page.

This is going to bring a herd of tourists this summer.

Is this the same artist who painted the building on 1st Avenue and 11th street that houses the Bean. Wasn't that building owned by Icon Realty and now Jared Kushner?

No, the artist was Walker Fee. He has worked with Nicolina before.
