Bedbugs Come to St. Mark’s


We thought this was the Summer of Ass, but maybe EV Grieve is right, it’s the Summer of Bedbugs. Today, the Village-scouring blog posted this photo of a trashed mattress/bedbug art project on St. Mark’s Place near Second Avenue that reads, “AHH, OHH, NEW YORK CITY BED BUGS.” We might as well have a sense of humor about it since they’re creeping all over New York, most recently in Victoria’s Secret, Abercrombie, and Hollister. Sweet dreams, people, and don’t touch this mattress, unless you’re framing it for your wall.
