It has been 6 years since the completion of the Notorious B.I.G mural. Habana acting as the canvas, has given a unique opportunity for local artists and the community. Together, Biggie’s iconic image and his lyric from his song, “Juicy” can be found appearing in front of the Brooklyn Love Building. While paying homage to Biggie’s influence in his native borough, the mural and lyrics promote a sense of community and compassion. As the neighborhood continues to grow and change, it also acts as a reminder towards ourselves, our neighbors and the place we can call our home.

After being hidden from the neighborhood for a whole season, the scaffolds around the Brooklyn Love Building are finally being taken down—(no more chin-ups high school kids, whomp whomp).

Mosey on down to Fulton and South Portland streets to catch a glimpse of the work that has been going on behind all the netting, iron rods and wood. Check back here for interviews with the artists and updates!Biggie’s eyes have the power to hypnotize Color Me Bad: Bright greens and blue areas on the building highlight the corner on Fulton Street

While we are bird crazy over here let’s slap a little trivia on you:
Did you know pigeons can see ultraviolet light which humans  can not?

Actually, our birds are quite the opposite
They’re soaring right out of the C train exit.

They’ve gotten great wind and weather to do so thanks to almost flawless autumn days. Artist Lee Quinones leequinones.com has been flying right along with their creation, just check out the images below!
