Reader mailbag: Looking for proposal pics from Tompkins Square Park

This past Saturday, EVG reader Haley got engaged in Tompkins Square Park.

She remains hopeful to find the person who took a few photos of the proposal in the southeast corner of the Park.

Haley said a woman with a smartphone "snapped a couple photos and walked away. I was in too much shock to notice. I would love to find these photos and hoping that person lives in the neighborhood and reads EV Grieve."

So on the chance that this person is reading this post... you can contact me via the EVG tipline.

Marriage mural on East Second Street rankles neighborhood activist

The Lo-Down reported on a controversy surrounding the newest mural by Tats Cru on Second Street at Avenue A. Turns out a longtime neighborhood activist is demanding that the property owners remove the mural that she finds "racially offensive." She contacted CB3 and other local organizations for help. CB3 District Manager Susan Stetzer forwarded the complaint to the New York City Commission on Human Rights, the Lo-Down noted.

Turns out that this is a marriage proposal mural (like the one that was in this space before...). The groom-to-be (Marisha said yes!) wrote in to the Lo-Down with an explanation. "[I]t is a shame that something bred of love is getting sprinkled with negativity because one individual misconstrued it – a piece of art, no less. Regardless, I just want to make it clear that I was the sole creative director of this mural and Tats Cru only executed my design as requested."

A marriage proposal by mural on Second Street (and she said yes)

Multiple readers/tipsters sent along word yesterday about a marriage proposal on the mural on East Second Street at Avenue A... as this photo from RyanAvenueA shows...

And later, Ryan (different one!) notes that the Caitlin of the mural said yes. Hey, he's not even on his knee!

The Late Adopter has a nice shot of the mural too here.
