JR on Bowery and Houston

So Kenny Scharf's colorful cartoonish mural has been replaced by a rather staid JR piece. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I was astounded by JR's photos of Israelis and Palestinians that I saw along the separation wall outside Bethlehem. And the photos of his work in Brazil are amazing. Maybe I'm missing something here, but it's not really working for me.
