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.
