Space Invaders Disappearing from New York

Space Invaders: An Endangered Species

Space Invaders have become an endangered species in New York City. You can see the rectangular spaces where they once perched. Buildings they’ve called home have been renovated or replaced.

Worst of all, some of these Invaders have been destroyed, for no apparent purpose. For example, the Space Invader below once watched over Ludlow Street between Stanton and Rivington. Look at the state of him now:

Space Invader: Street Art Defaced

Fortunately, a suspect has been photographed. As you can see, he had two accomplices who mainly stood as lookouts.

It's all fun and games until mosaic street art gets hurt.

Space Invader, if you’re reading this… it’s time for the second wave.
