"Extra! Extra! Read All About 14th Street NewsBoy"
Inspired by the newsboy sellers of the early 1900's in New York City's Union Square Park, LuLu LoLo "14th Street NewsBoy" hawked "The Fourteenth Street Tribune, AIOP Edition" at Union Square on 14th Street one day a week for four weeks in October 2009 as part of Art In Odd Places: Sign.
Each week 350 copies of the newspapers were given away free to the passersby on 14th Street by LuLu "14th Street NewsBoy." At the end of the four weeks a total of 1400 (symbolic of 14th
Street) copies of "The Fourteenth Street Tribune, AIOP
Edition" were read by New Yorkers.
"The Fourteenth Street Tribune, AIOP Edition" was researched
and written by Editor in Chief LuLu LoLo and the tabloid
recalled the famous, notorious, and tumultuous events from the
history of 14th Street. (See LuLu LoLo, Extra! Extra! Read All About 14th Street, Art in Odd Places, October 2009.)
And as "14th Street NewsBoy" LuLu shouted the following headlines:
"Boss Tweed Done in by a Cartoonist"
"Oscar Wilde Swindled in a Con-game"
"Lillian Russell's Mother runs for Mayor—First Woman to Run for Mayor! She got 4 Votes!"
Now anyone anywhere in the world can read these scintillating issues!
"Read about Boss Tweed's Escape from Jail and the Scandal at the Metropolitan Museum of Art"
"Read about the Catastrophe at the Grand Ball honoring the Prince of Wales!"
Issue 3: "Read about birth of Union Square's tradition as forum for labor rallies, parades, soap box speakers"
"Read about Lillian Russell and her mother Cynthia Leonard, the first woman to run for Mayor!"
