The Levee has a fantastic new anti-Trump mural

levee

Brokelyn is delighted that Williamsburg institution the Levee has weathered the rent hikes and gentrification that have plagued the neighborhood. We are too. It’s a great bar that just improved, well, bigly!

The bar we check on every week out of fear it’s finally being turned into an M&M Store/Lexus dealership mega complex is still holding strong, and is still at it with the great street art. The bar just unveiled a new mural yesterday on its North 3rd Street-facing side created by Damien Mitchell. It shows a winking Vladimir Putin taking off his Trump mask, which is to date the worst cosplay to wear to a party. Not even in your most strung out nights in the old Kokie’s days would you imagine a world where this art would be necessary in 2017.

It’s fitting that the bar known for serving dayglo orange cheeseballs has an ‘homage’ to our president, a soggy mound of cheese puffs in an ill-fitted suit. As you can see below, the mural is fantastic. Now, head over to the Levee to check it out yourself. [Read more…]

The bridge was draped with a Putin banner back in the Fall. [Read more…]

Protest the unlawful, un-American, unconstitutional Muslim ban today at 2pm. Large crowds assembled at airports across the country yesterday outraged by the detainments. Now, New Yorkers will be gathering by the Statue of Liberty viewpoint to voice their opposition:

In a true show of force, thousands of people descended upon JFK calling for the release of dozens of refugees and immigrants who were being detained, questioned, and refused entry to the United States.

Due to the collective efforts of advocacy groups and organizers in New York, the Federal Court for the Eastern District of New York has now issued a temporary stay halting President Donald Trump’s executive order. [Read more…]
