Space Invader: Bedford Ave

The Space Invaders of New York City

NYC Invaded

Space Invader hit NYC, and his handiwork is everywhere. Well, almost everywhere. The Invader on Spring between Elizabeth and the Bowery was removed (or maybe it flew away), and the Invader outside the Prine St. N/R subway stop is also gone.

However, even with severely limited free time, I managed to find three Invaders: one in Alphabet City and two in Williamsburg. Seeing Bedford Avenue again after many years made me understand why Lou Reed is so grumpy.
