How Statuesque

I took a walk down to a local restaurant in my neighborhood of Bed-Stuy (Brooklyn), and cut through a street I've never traversed, to find that one of my neighbors likes to collect statues.

Toynbee Tiles

I love how synchronicity works with me!
On Friday, I was walking to work at my tattoo studio in the East Village, when I came across a freshly placed, decent knock-off of a Toynbee Tile, on 1st Avenue (crossed with 4th Street).

On Sunday, while taking photos for my This Hidden City blog, I came across an original tile on Warren Street (crossed with Church Street).

If you are unfamiliar with the story behind these, I would highly suggest Jon Foy's documentary Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles, or just read up here.

Party Hard, Party Odd

I went to do laundry on Sunday, and - while waiting for the machines - I took a walk to snap some photos for my other blogs.
The area is mainly an empty warehouse district, so it was a bit strange to come across a relic of someone's weekend revelry.
