Saturday's opening shot

A recent arrival outside the Second Avenue F stop — "There's no crying in street art" ... a take on the Tom Hanks' quote from "A League of Their Own" — "There’s no crying in baseball."

Thursday's parting shot

EVG reader Garrett Rosso points out that for the first time since its arrival in late 2014, the "Alphabet City" mural has been tagged on the SW corner of Avenue C and Sixth Street ... on the (rather mysterious) RCN Cable building. 

The ABC mural is the work of Brooklyn-based artists The Yok and Sheryo. And there was a little bit of controversy when this mural first arrived.

Sunday's opening shot

In recent weeks, some folks have been creating this NYC streetscape mural on Fifth Street between Avenue A and Avenue B (near Minca) ... not sure who's doing it (the piece is not signed) and if it's complete yet... seems as if new details are added every few days.

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.

Monday's parting shot

You may have seen these small paintings of Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy around the neighborhood ... including part of his response to offers of an evacuation early on during the Russian invasion: "The fight is here; I need ammunition, not a ride." 

The art is by @EarlyRiser ... the photo from First Avenue and Ninth Street is by William Klayer.
