The famous Bowery mural space was ritualistically whitewashed over the weekend, in preparation for the latest installment in a long series of famed street artists. The past few days, Retna has been affixing his signature brand of scrit. This is how it looked on Tueday night, March 6th.

I probably wouldn’t normally post photos of a retail space on this blog. But, I thought that the new Rothman’s was so dope that I really wanted to share. It is a homegrown NYC business that has been around for longer than most of us have been alive. It recently moved from it’s spot on the north end of Union Square to a location on Park Ave. S. and 18th (not far from the former spot). Here is a little more detail on the business, in the Selectism coverage.
