Mr Dimmagio is Not a baseball Player and Neither Am I

There has been a lot going on with NPA these days. Mostly, the NYSAT project and the NYC DOB have reigned in the illegal wildposting they have been perpetrating on the city for a long time. The result of this was initially the whitewashing of many of their illegal locations and subsequently the removal of many of the illegal ad frames. In an effort to remind both the city and NPA that the remaining locations they are operating under the guise of legality and the Contest Promotions business model are still a clear abuse of the public environment, I have continued to hit what is left with Weave it! images. Along with my own efforts, I have had some international help, including one of my favorite ad takeover specialists, OX. Recently Mr. Dimaggio came into town and he had a few images to post as well. Apparently when Mr. Dimaggio was younger people asked him if he was related to the baseball great. As you can tell by his response, he was not. Mr. Dimaggio is not a baseball player, he is a street artist with a cause.

looks like jr contributed to the cause as well. (although his piece and the ad frame it was on only lasted for a day.)
