Hmmm, Not feeling that at all... Stars on the nose? Missing teeth? Maybe that's a cat that lives in the basement at the Garden?

I thought I remembered reading that the artists were asked to link the poster and the city/venue... Anybody got the back story for thos one?

I think the thing on his head is the The Cube at Astor Place, aka, Alamo (The Cube), if so, that would be the NYC tie-in to this poster, note the actual sculpture doesnt have wings.


Alamo (The Cube) is an outdoor sculpture by Bernard (Tony) Rosenthal, located on Astor Place, on the island of Manhattan in New York City. It takes the form of a black cube, 8 feet (2.4 m) long on each side, mounted on a corner. The cube weighs about 1100 kg (about 2500 lb). The faces of the cube are not flat but have various indentations, protrusions, and ledges. It is not widely known as Alamo, the name given on a small plaque on one corner of the base. Generally it is simply called The Astor Place Cube or The Cube.

Installed in 1967, it has since become a popular meeting place in the East Village. It stands in the middle of an intersection, across the street from both entrances to the Astor Place station of the New York Subway and the Cooper Union.
The Cube's distinguishing feature is that it can be spun on its vertical axis. One person can usually push it slowly with some exertion, and two or more people without trouble. Many people who move to New York consider turning the Cube to be a ritual signaling that they have "arrived" in the city. Sitting or sleeping in the shade of the Cube is also popular.
On March 10, 2005, the Parks Department removed the Cube for maintenance. The original artist and crew replaced a missing bolt, and made a few other minor repairs. A makeshift replica of pvc tubes named the Jello Cube in honor of Peter Cooper was placed in its stead. As of November 2005, the Cube returned with a fresh coat of black paint, still able to spin.

it's the feral cat that eats the toxic rats in the city's sewers below Astor Place.

Pretty cool poster. If I was a big PJ fan I would probably want this.
