Want some gum? Crazy gum wall on V Street


The other day I was down near the 9:30 Club and noticed the entry way of the building next door was covered in what looks like gum. Pretty weird.

The building is abandoned, it used to be Atlantic Plumbing, so I'm not really sure how the gum got there. 9:30 Club lines don't usually go that far, and the gum seems way too orderly placed to be just random. A quick Google search didn't turn up anything, although the gum wall does appear on Google Street View, so it's been there for a little while, at least.

Interesting, in any case. I guess if you're in the area and the flavor has gone out of your gum, stick it on there!

Love this thing! I remember seeing the gum wall at least four years ago, but wasn't nearly as "filled in" with gum as it is now.

The first time I noticed it was, in fact, while waiting on a very long line to get into the 9:30 Club (Tracy Chapman, 8/8/09).

That's nothing! I went to college in San Luis Obispo, CA, where 'bubble gum alley' has long been a local point of interest. People have been sticking gum there for over 40 years and a trip to stick your first gum there was an essential part of freshman orientation...

This has major potential. Just 5,947,334 more pieces and this is gonna be a piece of art.

Gives me hope.
