Under the bridge... IT'S TROYBOT!

TroyBot mural

Check it out: There's a new mural under the Green Island Bridge depicting TroyBot.

The mural is on the wall of the Troy-side bridge overpass. It's based on a design by Ben Karis-Nix from Troy Cloth and Paper. A group of volunteers, including RPI and Sage students, helped paint the piece last week.

The TroyBot character is an imagined version of the Green Island Bridge that can transform into a giant robot. The mural depicts TroyBot helping the city after a storm.

Here are a handful of large-format pics.

SAVE US TROYBOT!

AWESOME!

AND presumably destroying the Captain JP. Bwahahahahaha.

I like it. It makes me glad that people do interesting stuff like this.

Great Work!!!!

Love it!

It looks like it should be part of a larger bot, like the Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger vehicles or Voltron (Voltroy?) vehicles would combine.

What other landmarks are part of the collector set?

That is absolutely awesome.

(1) I've always liked the Troybot design - it's cool to see it realized in such a large format

(2) Ben Karis-Nix is a cool guy. I met him when I took an intro to screen printing class at Troy Cloth and Paper. He has good energy and his genuine enthusiasm for printing and teaching really jumps out at you.

Thanks AOA!! We're doing some more touch-ups on the mural this Saturday between 10-2pm if anybody with a steady hand would like to help out? Thanks for all the nice comments, folks!

Troy has way more parking downtown than any other city I visit. There are 3 parking garages downtown and 2 are within 1000ft of Monument Square. There are public surface lots nearby. Outside the downtown core there is tons of street parking with few to no restrictions. It is unrealistic to expect cities to have parking directly in front of your destination like the suburbs. That's WHY they're different classifications.
