As I noted on Wednesday, the footpath of the Pulaski Bridge, which connects Greenpoint, Brooklyn to Hunter's Point, Queens, has become the personal gallery of an exceptionally talented graffiti artist. His stenciled works have everything that is missing from the creations of so many other aerosol artists — charm, movement, style, even an inherent backstory that makes you curious and leaves you yearning for more.
Last October I first wrote about the display and posted a group of photos I'd taken with my cell phone. By late November, when I last took photos, more characters had joined the party. I introduced some of them on Wednesday. Today, let's watch them interact.

First, Green Girl bounces onto the bridge from the Brooklyn side and the adventure begins.
By and by, the artist drops in, spray paint in hand. What is curious here is that he seems to be climbing over the wall from the roadway — not recommended on the Pulaski Bridge.
Meanwhile, near the center of the bridge our original star, Red Boy, has also met some people and perhaps made a friend.
As I posted these this morning, I realized that we do not yet see Red Boy and Green Girl meet. Weather permitting, I'll walk the bridge this weekend to find out if things have changed.
