Mosaic Man Vs. Astor Place Reconstruction

01.17.11 Marina Galperina

Neighborhood public artist/personality Jim Powers might just be the biggest enemy of the mass reconstruction planned for Astor Place and Cooper Square that will absorb the Alamo cube and its island island and give pedestrians more space to wander and get drunk ‘n’ rowdy. His beloved lamp posts would be clipped and destroyed, but Mosaic Man Jim tells ANIMAL he’s going to fight. (Images: ANIMAL New York and Curbed)
