Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Friday, May 01, 2021


I captured this little yellow skeleton/totem-like stickman on my cameraphone while waiting to cross Bowery in SoHo (Flickrized here). He’s situated near the street corner (that white patch in the upper-left is the pedestrian crossing line), and is painted on the asphalt with road-grade paint. So whoever planted him intended to have him stay there for a while.

The thing is, he’s completely standalone — no accompanying words or symbols to give him context. So he’s a bit of a mystery man. If anyone knows what he’s selling, let me know. Not that I’ll lose any sleep over it.

  1. MYSTERY SKELETON STICKMAN RETURNS!…

    So I’m on 3rd Avenue, crossing 23rd Street heading uptown, and when I get to the other corner… Who do I see but Mystery Skeleton Stickman, who I’d previously encountered on the Bowery pavement. On the road again, so to speak.

    Actually, he didn’t…
