‘Turtle fanatic’ papers New York City with TMNT decals
Toronto may have the likes of Wonder Woman, Agent Cooper and Astro Boy watching over its neighborhoods, but New York City has Turtle Power.
That’s because for the past month 33-year-old Sean Haynes, an avowed “Turtle fanatic” has been spreading his love for the heroes in a half shell by creating his own Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles decals and sticking them around the city — on subway cars, bus shelters, wherever. He then uploads photos of them to his Instagram account, encouraging his followers to find them.
“It’s all over, from the East Village to Park Slope to even Astoria, Queens,” Haynes told the New York Daily News.
Unlike the images adorning Toronto neighborhood watch signs, Haynes’ decals peel right off. So no one has to worry about scratching paint while trying to remove April O’Neil from that MTA sign.
