Graphic City: Chicken, Anyone?

25 Nov

CityBoy’s family was just here for an early Thanksgiving celebration and we enjoyed a post-dinner walk back to their hotel room, taking time to point out the Squirrel Apartment to his niece.

Which is probably more likely the Squirrel Mansion, as both the entrance and upper stories feature this humble woodland creature (wrought iron statues topping the gate and cut-out silhouettes marching in a line above the second floor windows).

The great thing is that there’s always something interesting to see in Manhattan, from beautifully maintained historic buildings to new glam-rock condo towers and original subway tile work.  Even the graffiti here makes me smile.  Sometimes it’s thought-provoking, like this one:

Other times, it’s just so fantastic I make CityBoy double-back so I can capture it for posterity, like this one:


I mean, who doesn’t enjoy a penis-headed chicken?  So keep your eyes open; there’s some great stuff out there.

Rock on, people.
