Pig on E.12th Street

Pig on E.12th Street

East Village, NYC

I don't really know the whole story of why there's a pig painted on this wall (there's also a dinosaur inexplicably painted on a wall on 13th Street just a little ways away). This particular pig floats above a bar that used to be a cool watering hole in the early 90's called "The Dragon Bar." Later, the place changed hands a became a gay bar named, charmingly, "Dicks". I think it's vacant at the moment.
