175 Ludlow Street, between Houston Street and Stanton Street, Lower East Side, Manhattan

January 2001

I painted this next to the door of a building that was undergoing renovation, so everyone thought the piece was part of the renovation. No one bothered me at all, except for the construction workers, who were very flirtatious.

I made this painting up and put in a seal because it was near my friend Jan Baracz’s house and he likes seals. It didn’t last very long, because the renovators painted over it.
