Someone spraypainted this message overnight on the Con Ed substation along Avenue A.
There were reactions to it on Twitter...

As a follow-up to our post earlier today on the unveiling of the new residential building on the site of the deadly March 2015 gas explosion... EVG regular 2ndAvenueSilverPanther points out that the condoplex on Second Avenue and Seventh Street has already been tagged...

You've likely seen these flexing, amorphous figures around on various buildings, construction sites, sidewalk cellar doors and at least two USPS trucks in recent weeks.
Here's just a sampling from the past week-plus...
People recall first seeing these in early to mid January...
The figures are growing in popularity, at least among a few Instagram users who have referred to the character as Super Girl (or Supergirl) and Power Puff Girl. We don't know who the identity of the artist, but the person calls these figures Stargirl.
The spray-painted drawings are pretty consistent — a smile, flexing arms and a star on the belly. Sometimes she is alone. Other times in packs. She has been spotted on the Lower East Side. We've had a sighting via a reader on 14th Street and Sixth Avenue. We haven't spotted many, if any, east of Avenue B...
Once she did the splits...
Several times the name Gwen appeared nearby...
The photos of these on Third Avenue and St. Mark's Place are from late January. They've been painted over.
But there will be many more, no doubt.

Some time on Monday night or early Tuesday morning, someone took a firehose to the Con Ed substation on Avenue A between Sixth Street and Fifth Street...
This past August, someone sprayed DBDBDBDBDBDBDB from Sixth Street all the way across Avenue A. It took two months before Con Ed had the tagggggggg removed.
Thanks to Stacie Joy for the photos!

A legendary NYC graffiti artist has created murals for the awnings at Supper on Second Street between Avenue A and Avenue B.
East Village restaurateur Frank Prisinzano (Frank, Lil' Frankie's) commissioned GHOST, described as "one of the last kings of the New York City train writing era," to do the work on the restaurant as well as the building next door, home to Flux Studios.
GHOST and GIZ completed the 1970s-style work last week.
"Back in the 70s and 80s graffiti was what made me feel at home in NYC," Prisinzano told me via email. "It gave off a constant urban pulse that I think was very calming for everyone. The idea that street art can’t be suppressed and that it’s really the neighborhood bulletin board is what I want you to feel when you look at the work we just did at Supper."
Here's a better look via this photo by EVG regular Salim...

A graffiti scrub team paid a visit to this spot next to the Big Bar on Seventh Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue earlier today... and blasted that fish eye art that has been here for several years. (Four years? Three years? I know I did a post when it arrived.)
Not sure why someone decided to have this cleaned now... thanks to Derek Berg for these photos...
Despite the power-washing session yesterday...
