The mural by Brazilian twins Os Gêmeos has some company now on Second Avenue at East First Street...
We noticed someone working on the adjacent building in the empty lot last evening...
... and today...
We're told that it's the work of French street artist JR. (See his other NYC ballerinas here.)
You have some time to enjoy it before the 10-story building with 31 residences and ground-floor retail goes up here.
