Power to the People, in Midtown

Power to the People
Photo by myself at 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue.

For whatever reason, a building at the northwest corner of Bryant Park sometimes displays billboards on the ground floor.

Smart idea, since otherwise this building is easy to miss. What better way to animate a plain grid glass than to fill the panes with colorful images?

Last January, billboards displayed the current exhibits at MoMA. Now there are billboards for the release of a John Lennon compilation.

I'm not sure why the NYPD concrete blockades are up on the sidewalk. Note the New York City skyline on the album cover.

Happy Monday, everyone!

I wonder if the blockades have something to do with what is behind the glass?
I love this.
