Sidewalk Shed Stays Free Of Graffiti For 23 Straight Days And Counting

As you can see in the photo above, this sidewalk shed on the corner of Elizabeth and Kenmare has been free of any embellishment for at least an astonishing 23 days. First spied on Nov 24, it consists of a clean, white slate for anyone to work with; unbelievably it has remained untouched since then. Have the prolific wheat pasters who used to roam these streets moved on to new neighborhoods beyond the Williamsburg Bridge? When will some derring-do artist with a woodcut of a bird come hang his handiwork? Or maybe this blank slate of white is the art?? NYCTB will keep you posted.

This space joins another blank white wall on Mulberry and Prince, which until recently displayed a hand-painted ad for the Intermix boutique. If you know any "street artists," who would love to "get up," spread the word.
