Art vs. the Machine

Houston and Ludlow, c. 2004, former parking lot.
Artist Richard Hambleton tells the story of two junkies, looking to break into the cars, who kept waiting for a lot attendant to leave so they could get on with their business. At daylight they realize, furiously, they'd been foiled by his "shadowman"...
There's a 24-floor luxury apartment building on the lot now.
