A couple weeks ago (as guest blogger on Curbed), I posted some about the immutable permanence of the stock photos adorning the windows of the Rite Aid at the corner of Smith and President Streets in Brooklyn. They'd been there for years, that lipsticked executrix and that happy, biking couple, and they showed no signs of moving.
Well, chalk one up for the power of the blogosphere. Nine days after that post hit the internet, a worker was outside the Rite Aid, ripping those photos out of the window displays. (No, I do not consider this a coincidence.) To the ashheap they went. The window remain empty at press time. What years-long ad campaign awaits up next? And will Stephen Collins be part of it?
