August, 1977- NYC Police Finally Apprehend Son of Sam Killer

For months, New York police tracked Son of Sam, an apparently psychotic killer who terrorized the city, fatally shooting six people and wounding seven.  Last week, police arrested David Berkowitz, 24, a postal clerk, as he set out on what police say would have been his biggest killing … “Police! Don’t Move!” detectives yelled. “Okay,” David Berkowitz said quietly.  ”You’ve go me.” And then he smiled.  It was a strangely mundane conclusion to one of the largest and most publicized manhunts in history.

Newsweek August 22, 1977

Wall Dogs: The Midair Muralists Who Paint New York

It’s 8am in Soho, the thermometer reads just above freezing, and the sky is bleak. Taxis splash down the streets; New Yorkers stride with their heads down, leaping over puddles, carelessly bumping into each other. Everyone wants to get out of the cold, out of the rain, into the warmth.

Ten stories above — on a long, skinny platform hanging from the facade of a building at Canal and Mercer in downtown Manhattan — it’s a different story. Climbers’ ropes secured around their torsos, Jason Coatney and Armando Balmaceda stand in a melange of open paint cans and brushes. These two muralists of Colossal Media, the largest hand-painted advertising company in America, are heavily layered in sweatshirts and raincoats. But in this industry, c’est la vie. Paintbrushes in their fingerless-gloved hands, earbuds in their ears — “I like to start out with Miles Davis in the morning,” Coatney smiles, his breath visible in the frigid air — they begin yet another workday in the sky.
