Mattress with Bedbugs Art, on corner of St. Marks Place and 2nd. Ave.
This kind of makes having bedbugs look like one wacky experience that all New Yorkers should love.
The mattress was up for at least three days, surprising for a busy street full of kids. Now that bedbugs have reportedly struck both pillars of our flawless unbitten-skin society, Victoria's Secret and Abercrombie and Fitch, I guess this street art just touches the hearts of even the most privileged NYU students.
The name "Samuel Marko(?)" is drawn on the mattress.
(made Gothamist front on a Friday night. Woohoo. Hi readers. I wish I had more of other people's brilliant art that I did the hard work of taking an iPhone snapshot of to show off to you, but I don't.)
