Through the years, the East Houston Street side of 6 Avenue B has been home to a variety of tributes and ads by Chico... (the most recent ad on the corner space was a colorful spot for Wafels & Dinges...)
This past weekend, several readers were surprised to see that someone painted over the existing murals... (apparently a trend)
So far, no one seems to know who ordered the paint-over for the corner... and we're told that Chico is quite upset by this development...
