    Come to think of it, I wouldn't be surprised to discover that, whatever agreement the hotel has with the protected tenant in the red brick building, the deal to preserve that residence will only last for her lifetime. And that the longer term plan is that eventually the hotel will raze that building and build an extension on the south.

    Yesterday they were getting ready to lay the pavers in the side garden along East 5th ...







    New canopies have gone in for the side entrances here. Rather than glass like they used out front,
    here the canopies are a matched set of high-gloss white metal -- very simple and sharp ...









    I can't wait to see what CZapata has planned for the south wall of the old walk-up ...



    All in all, this is great.

    ^ Wherever there's graffiti they should put windows.

    Cooper Square Hotel Tags Itself!

    October 30, 2009, by Joey









    EAST VILLAGEóThe East Village's favorite new glamorous boutique hotel is at it again. But what exactly is "it?" A crew was spotted adding some sort of graffiti artwork to the big wall facing East 5th Street today, and at the end of the day we're still a bit uncertain of the message the Coop is trying to convey. EV Grieve think it's a Homer Simpson tribute. Mmm...co-opted artistic mediums. [CurbedWire Staff]

    Is leaving it blank better? Or would you like better art?

    What a_holes. It looks like crap. Perhaps these schlongs could have built a waterfall against that wall or put ivey/vines on it.

    Serve them right if it inspires someone to tag the tower.

    Now that's getting edgy.

    If they wanted to go this route... wouldn't it have been better
    if they had at least picked some graffiti artist
    with some actual talent, like say Banksy?!
