If you were walking along 3rd avenue and 16th street last night, you may have noticed that gramercy residents have either gotten into the habit of elegantly situating their garbage these days or someone is making some crazy awesome street art out of bright orange hangers. You be the Judge. Either way….we want more.
Do you know why you’re afraid when you’re alone? I do…
There’s a scene at the end of the Sixth Sense where Bruce Willis finally realizes he’s a ghost and there are ghosts walking all around him like regular people who only see what they want to…I had a similar revelation when I realized that the “You Go Girl” street art on Avenue A was not an isolated graffiti but that “YGG” is among us everyday…you just have to want to see it. It’s all over and it’s not just in NYC. “YGG” has been spotted in California, New Orleans, Portland and Austin and the legend is growing. There’s even a flickr group dedicated to it…still waiting for the facebook invite. Sources close to Discosalt have told us there is just one prolific guy responsible, running around the country spreading his nationa message of girl power like some feminist Johnny Appleseed. You Go Girl!
