  3. This was just one of those great “East Village Moments.”

    Yesterday, while Jim was out doing some work on St. Mark’s Place, a walking tour led by long-time local resident, Courtney Shapiro, came walking by. Courtney had just finished telling her group about The Legendary Mosaic Trail and had pointed out a number of light poles along the way. She mentioned that she started seeing these mosaics 30 years ago, but never once met the individual behind them. That’s when someone on the street pointed to Jim and said "That’s the Mosaic Man right there."

    So, the group stopped to take some photos with the artist himself, and was entertained for a while by Jim and his stories and, of course, Jessie Jane and her bag of tricks.

    Photographer Bobby Williams just happened to be right there when it all went down and he snapped the top picture that was later posted to EV Grieve.

    From Courtney:

    "Thank you so much for taking the time today to speak to my group of travelers from all over the world —- we had people from Iran, the United Kingdom, Dominican Republic, Germany, Spain and Australia and they were all very interested in hearing your story and they absolutely loved your mosaic artwork.

    It was a treat to meet you after more than 30 years of seeing your art beautify this wonderful neighborhood.”

    And from Jim himself:

    "THAT ‘MOMENT’ IS ONE OF THE REASONS I LOVE WORKING AND LIVING IN THE EAST VILLAGE. JESSIE JANE, IN THE PHOTO WITH NATHAN WHITESIDE, AND I MEET MANY WONDERFUL PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER. THANK YOU ONE AND ALL AND ALSO THANKS TO BOBBY WILLIAMS FOR CAPTURING THE ‘MOMENT!’ MANY MORE TO COME ON THE MOSAIC TRAIL!"

    This is what it’s all about, folks.

    Jim, in his element.

    Jim hopes the trail will be around for another 100 years so generations to come will be able to enjoy his work.

  7. New “St. Mark’s Place” design up at The Official Mosaic Man Collection on CafePress!

    This one features a bold design that gives a shout out to the heart of the East Village!

    Again, we especially like the framed prints! Thinking that a collection of these would look great on an apartment wall…

    View “St. Mark’s Place” and the rest of the collection here.
