Walk in the Street

Andy Warhol's getting another 15 minutes.
This life-size chrome statue, by sculptor
Rob Pruitt, stands (until next month, I hear) in
Union Square, very near the site of the Factory
(the one from the '70s), across the park from Max's Kansas City
(where I met him in the '60s), and very close to where
he used to stand and hand out copies of Interview.
[To see more from the Walk in the Street
challenge, visit  Olivier's blog.]


  1. And he would have like it this way.
    Oh, and thanks for your kind comments in my blog.

  2. This bright and shiny tribute seems very appropriate. And somehow I'm not surprised to learn you met the original, Alexa.

  3. Was living in Greenwich Village with my uncle during the summers of '59 and '61 but did not run into him. Too early?

  4. un bel hommage a Andy et j'aime bien le polaroid que le sculpteur a garde dans la main d'Andy. belle statye
