The Mosaic Man's smokin' tribute to David Peel on Astor Place



Jim Power created a tribute on one of his mosaic lightpoles on Astor Place to honor the late David Peel ... and there's a detail that the longtime East Village resident — known for his 1960s anthem "I Like Marijuana" — would likely appreciate...



Peel died on April 6. He was 73.

Thanks @edenbrower!

It used to be that people who lived here were known for their political activism, today they're known for getting stoned.

David was an activist...one of the longest running ones. Maybe that is why you hide your name. I grew up seeing David and enjoying his music. He and Grandpa Al Lewis. Both dearly missed.

Really? I think that WAS political activism.

I now realize my mistake in writing in Mickey Mouse for president last November. It should have been Jim Power.

Reply: It used to be that the reason we were all activists is because we were all doing mind-expanding drugs and exploring new social and political concepts. Don't put the cart before the horse Anon. Drugs and new ideas often go hand in hand or like an ourbouros everything comes full circle.

By the way, besides criticism, what are you known for?

P.S. Don't be offended by my reply.
