Veken spotted this giant panel a few days ago at N9th & Driggs and fantasized about taking it down.
Today, he walked by and saw the developer (or who he assures me definitely looked like the developer) ripping it down with 5 construction workers decked out in orange vests and the whole 9 yards.
Veken approached the men and asked if he could have it. The developer guy said no, looked a little shifty and then explained he was going to put it back up! Veken didn’t really buy the story.
Now…just a few minutes ago, Veken reports that the workers put it back up and did a better job of attaching it to the barrier and even moved it one panel over (here is a detail of what it looked like before).
Is this an ad? Was that the artist masquerading as the developer with 5 construction dudes? WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!?!?!?
Something’s fishy in Billyburg!
