Best Coverage of the Thing That Everyone Covered

11 Spring Street. A mysterious building in Nolita once formerly owned by Rupert Murdoch's son (he was going to make a mansion of it) now bought by developers who will be turning it condo. During its decrepit days its outer walls served as a magnet for street art. Now, with the condominiumizing about to begin, its owners and the Wooster Collective opened all five floors of the building for a three-day exhibition of what's what and who's who right now in street art.


The line was merciless (like a Playstation3 launch for hipsters), but you know someone who knew someone who knew someone who knew someone that got us to the head of the line.







This is what there was to see:





















The DJ was killing it with dancehall/surf rock mashups and such. AND he played "Goo Goo Muck"!









Do you see the fellow photographing the strings? That's Colin Hanks. You know, Tom's son? From King Kong and Orange County?




























































All in all, I certainly liked it. I'm certain the internet is flooded with amateur coverage of this event right now, I thank you for choosing Steady Mobbin' as your official blog of the 11 Spring Graffiti Thing.

I never even heard about 11 spring street. I'm in kid land in Los Angeles. I can only tell you that the local mall got a new Santa and that just blows since I have pictures of my kid with the last Santa for the last 8 years and now they had to go and change the Santa! But these photos were so cool it made me take my mind off my Santa issue! Thanks Briggie!
