190 Bowery, a New York City landmark and once the home of artist Jay Maisel will soon be completely cleaned up.

The graffiti removal was expected; rumors abounded that it would happen last month, and the massive decade-old “NEKST” tag would remain. Guess there was a delay in the process. The first few panels of “buffing tape” arrived last Tuesday, and the effort continued through the end of the week. The above shot is an updated look at the Spring Street facade as of [July 1st].
