Lonelyhearts Post-It Paster Hits Lower East Side

Posted on: May 27th, 2011 at 6:09 am by

Wednesday morning, we published a piece about a Post-It note that appeared in the Delancey subway station.  At the time, it seemed to be an imitation of a missed connections entry on Craigslist.  Turns out, this placement is part of a larger sorry-sack trend across the neighborhood.  A sort of lonelyhearts Post-It paster.

Walking past the 250 Bowery construction site yesterday, we spotted another such Post-It with identical handwriting, and carrying a similar message.  This one reads, “Don’t try too hard or she’ll run away.”

As if that wasn’t enough, a third note was spotted by Boogie reader Nicky Seeza in a random cab at Allen and Delancey.  The hat-trick.

Damn, this dude must’ve been through one hell of a breakup.  Or it could just be guerrilla promotion.  Have you spotted other such Post-Its around the Lower East Side?  Be sure to drop us a line.
