Pre New Year's Eve balloon fun on East 4th Street

Perhaps someone is getting an early start on NYE here at 52E4 — the 15 stories of condo on the Bowery and East Fourth Street. Or maybe it's just someone's birthday. Or something else!

No tech bubbles

The bubble fellow is back... Photos this evening in Tompkins Square Park by Bobby Williams.

[Updated] Mysterious (for now!) balloons arrive on East 14th Street

EVG reader Aaron sends along these shots this morning... someone (a protester?) put up signs from ballons at the intersections of 14th Street and Third Avenue and 14th Street and Irving Place.

Aaron couldn't make out the signs. Anyone else see them?


See the comments for more info. And @robbyohara notes that DOT workers have removed the balloons and signs....

Despite predicament, Mickey Mouse still smiling

We spotted this tragic scene earlier this week on Avenue A at East 10th Street ... some poor child is now Mickey balloon-less...

At this point, we do not know if the balloon was lost before or after its intended destination. Perhaps an errant delivery person accidentally let go of the balloon on the way to the party ... or, after the celebration, the excited child let the balloon slip from his or her grasp... only to see it tangled above Avenue A ... slowly losing air... but Mickey, still stuck as of this morning, is managing this crisis. Still smiling.

Adventures of Balloon Girl on the 4, 5 and 6

Rush hour, and the 4 and 5 are too crowded... waiting and waiting...

...for a much less-crowded local...

Balloon porn discovered in Tompkins Square Park

Thanks to EV Grieve reader Blue Glass for this shot... yesterday at the Carnival for Tompkins Square Middle School in Tompkins Square Park.... some mischief, perhaps, with the balloons... And at an event for kids. For shame. Maybe the Penistrator was making a non-wintertime appearance to keep us on guard...

Nino's is back in business; hearts float over the East Village

Nino's on Avenue A and St. Mark's was back open yesterday after a temporary closure by the DOH...(and yes -- the naked Santa is still on the window...)

Meanwhile, a Nino's employee had dozens of heart-shaped helium balloons (Valentine's Day goods gone unused...?). And he simply walked out out Nino's and let them go...

And we watched the balloons go up...


and up...until we couldn't see them any longer.
