When the Peter Stuyvesant Post Office on 14th Street closed they replaced it with this nondescript location on 333 E. 14th St. There is no flag and no name or just about any indication that it is even there at all.
Sorry, I’ve been neglecting this blog lately as I’ve been working hard to finalize my Tompkins Trees Map. Heres some recent street art I’ve found in my East Village neighborhood.
Skull on Avenue A. Death imagery always draws your attention.
Someone is chalking the First and the Fourth Amendments around the neighborhood: asking for Comments, Shares and Likes. This chalk was on the hex tiled circle in the Central Plaza of Tompkins Square Park, a place where kids often do chalk drawings.
Wallbooked First Amendment chalked on the green painted wall around the hole where Mary Help of Christians once was.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
I want to thank the 20 or so people who came to the tree identification walk yesterday. Much thanks for the large turnout goes to EV Grieve, it seems like everyone in the neighborhood reads Grieve. If interest is expressed, I’ll do more walks.
Your feedback was much welcomed. I am incorporating new features into the latest version of the map accordingly. Use the contact form to tell me whatever. You can also use the contact form to say you wish to be informed of future walks and news.
Are you interested in obtaining high resolution, wall-sized or fold-up map? I am thinking of doing this to help finance this project, as I receive no grants or funding.
