.... and in case you haven't seen the mural behind P.S. 751 on Fourth Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue... the mural was unveiled in May. However, the gates were always locked when I went by, so I never had a chance for a decent photo.

So thanks to AFineLyne for sharing these via GothamToGo...

The nonprofit group, Artolution and the students at P.S. 751 and Harvey Milk High School came together to create this 160x25 mural to capture their diversity and individuality...

...and a resident misplaced a backpack with two laptops and other work-related items back on June 28... he's hopeful that the bag, which went missing between Seventh and Ninth Street/First and Second Avenue, turns up... the Craigslist post is here ...
