Best Gentrification-Protest Graffiti (2008)

"CAUTION: VILLAGE PEOPLE"

Williamsburg we call Villainsburg now, our hands split like Spock's for the V that speaks our infamy—or at least our love of gay disco. Listen, if the city insists on building waterfront high-rises here, we insist on adding bushy black-marker moustaches to every hard-hatted man on those "Caution: Men at Work" signs. Bloomberg, take note: The one on North 7th Street between Berry and Bedford now reads, "CAUTION: VILLAGE PEOPLE."
