Olek wall street bull
  • Or, the ugliest Christmas sweater ever.

Polish-American street knitter Agata Olek, whose work we spotted in Dumbo a couple months ago, brought a much more ambitious project to beautiful fruition for two precious hours yesterday before it was taken down and blanketed in snow: she covered Wall Street’s “Charging Bull” sculpture in her trademark neon crochet patterns. This is easily the best thing that has ever happened in the Financial District ever. (ANIMAL)
