For some time now there has been talk about whether this wall mural at West Broadway and Reade Street, which has been there since I began essaying FNY in 1998, is a real ad, or a “Boardwalk Empire” type movie prop, which has never been painted over. The mural reads “Brush up Business with Paint, Paste, Paper, Push.” At least I figured out what “push” meant; at first I thought it was outmoded lingo for a paper product, but it merely means ‘publicity.’

Of course the issue may have been settled when I wasn’t paying attention. Is the definitive word in?
