Graffiti artist Alec Monopoly will literally be rappeling from the Fontainebleau’s Tresor Tower while he finishes a 50 foot piece of art that will hang at the intersection of Collins Avenue and 44th Street. Anyone passing by on Thursday from 1:30pm to 2pm can watch Monopoly finish the job while he hangs up in the air.
