Wheatpasters 1, Property Managers 0

Earlier this summer we noted how the plywood along the demolished storefronts at 250 E. Houston St. had become a wheatpaste hotspot in recent months.

Later, the property managers here between Avenue A and Avenue B unveiled their line of wheatpaste defense — some rando 2x4s on the plywood, intended to prevent the Wheatpasting Gangs of New York from putting up ads for, say, that sold-out Andrew Bird show at Pier 17 or the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs' record, Cool It Down (which I think will be good). 

Anyway, as the top photo shows... the green guards are fairly useless. Hope there's a money-back guarantee!

And now, a word from our adverti...

As seen on Seventh Street... an Acne Stuidos ad with a message from a passerby: "These ads are disgusting."

Not to worry, it's probably already covered by another wheatpaste ad... these seem to have a 36-48-hour lifespan, if that.

Let the wheatpaste battle BEGIN!

The plywood along the demolished storefronts at 250 E. Houston St. has become a wheatepaste hotspot in recent months...
Now, the property managers here between Avenue A and Avenue B have unveiled their line of wheatpaste defense ... thanks to Salim for these shots...
So far, the green guards are almost 100% effective...
As we first reported, a six-story residential building is in the works for the lot.

Tuesday's parting shot

Rolling up laters of wheatepaste posters this evening outside the dormant construction pit on the NE corner of Third Avenue at St. Mark's Place... (on the top — Supreme's Spring/Summer 2022 ad by Harmony Korine featuring Julix Fox...)

Cuomo on the Bowery

Finally had a chance to see the Gov. Cuomo/Superman wheatpaste on the Bowery at Houston... a collaboration between SacSix and Mr. Poop...

Still haven't taken a look at the Dr. Fauci/Dr. Spock wheatpaste...

Dance dance dance

New wheatpaste art — David Bowie, Madonna and Nile Rogers — spotted next to the mural wall on the Bowery at East Houston yesterday. (What connects the three? Rogers produced Madonna's Like a Virgin and co-produced Let's Dance.)

Here's an up-close look at the art, created by The Postman...

... and here's a sampling of other wheatpaste stickers by the Postman that have been around (spotted on either First Street or Second Street) these past few months...
