City sets record for filling pothole; removes Donald Trump mosaic on 2nd Street
Chicago-based artist Jim Bachor filled several NYC potholes with mosaic art this past week... including one of President Trump on Second Street between Avenue A and First Avenue, as we noted Wednesday.
When asked about the work, DOT officials weren't amused, and vowed to pave over the mosaics, the Post reported on Wednesday.
And yesterday, the city made good on that promise, removing the work on Second Street...
The speed at which the city responded took Bachor by surprised. He posted on Twitter: "Damn that was fast."
One Twitter user noted that this pothole, adjacent to a fire hydrant, likely never would have been filled by the city otherwise.
