A new era for the old Bad Pussies wall on 3rd Street and Avenue B

Photos by Stacie Joy 

On Saturday, Italian muralists Jorit and Tukios started a new project on the SW corner of Third Street and Avenue B — outside Mama's Bar...
Here's a look yesterday at the final mural of Talib Kweli and Mos Def (Yasiin Bey) — aka Black Star...
The two had permission from the building's owner to do this mural (it was not commissioned) ... which replaces the longstanding Bad Pussies mural that had been nearly tagged out of existence

While visiting NYC, Jorit and Tukios have kept busy, creating murals of KRS-One on Second Street at First Avenue and Malcolm X in First Street Green Art Park ... as well as Muhammad Ali on Sixth Street at First Avenue...

Caturday's news: 'Bad Pussies' mural tagged on 3rd Street

In the last day or two someone tagged (defaced?) the "Bad Pussies" mural on Third Street at Avenue B... The mural has been here since at least 2007 (the earlier Google Street View goes back) ... and some previous EVG coverage here.

Thanks to John for letting me reprint... see more of his photos on his Facebook page. And he's frequently posting new shots there.

"Bad pussies" coverup outside Mama's

Several people asked yesterday what was going on outside Mama's on Third Street at Avenue B. The "Bad Pussies" mural that once paid homage to Bea Arthur!

Thanks to intrepid EV Grieve reader Empire for providing some photos of what I was just talking about...


According to the DOB: minor interior renovation and new plumbing fixtures.

Hope the bad pussies aren't harmed during all this...

The Bea Arthur tag

The "Bad Pussies" mural on the side of Mama's at Third Street and Avenue B (which "passes off a subtle message of yuppicide") has always fascinated me...

...and even more so now with the passing yesterday of NYC native Bea Arthur, who was 86.

...the Bea Arthur tag has been there for as long as I can remember... I just never knew why. I've seen the Bea Arthur tag a few other places around the neighborhood...just can't remember where at the moment.
