Tats Cru created a new mural this week on Second Street at Avenue A... paying tribute to Bittman John "Bimbo" Rivas (1939-1992), who coined the term "Loisaida" in 1974...

There are also street scenes that depict these COVID-19 times...

I'll never forget the opening of a reading Bimbo gave at ABC No Rio:

"Dreams are dreams and facts are facts
We share our flats with big old rats ..."

I took it as a nod to, I have a Dream.
