  • “But I shoulda been a Trader Joes”

  • I used to live a block from there. Luckily I moved before this retarded children’s playset want-to-be went up.

    I want my trader joes!

  • The post said something about art, but all I see is some rubbish strewn about a vacant lot. Weird.

  • I liked it better when it was a gas station.

  • Wow, looks like the DC art critics have spoken

  • forget you guys. before BK showed up, that lot was full of empty Velicoff bottles. i’ll take easter-colored bicycles anytime.

  • i suppose it’s better than an empty lot, but good lord that is terrible.

  • If they’d seed some grass, it could be a temporary park by now.

    I’m sure some lawyer would pitch a fit about liability, but you can’t let lawyers overrule good citizenship.

  • I used to let my dog run around that space. But there were some crazy holes, broken glass and other crap in that lot.

    Frankly, I like impromptu street art. It may not be the best in the world, but its vibrant, and the juxtaposition of the absurd with the derelict is interesting. Also its temporary, which has a certain charm

  • I finally realized or have a reason to why public art looks horrible to the untrained eye…so nobody will steal it! It works for me.

  • Wow, what a bunch of naysayers. Until the apartment complex goes in, I’m pretty happy we have a “sculpture garden” in the neighborhood, rather than an empty lot full of dying weeds and vodka bottles. I think it is great, and the artist is a really nice guy.

  • I live on this block. I am all about found art, but I just can’t get behind the smiley face trash cans that I see when I look out my back windows.
