What in Tribeca?

I have to admit, I cannot answer my own question! Hoping one of you all can… What is it? (We went with zombie rocker for the Google search…Nada.)

UPDATE: Thanks to Steven and Mary Amsterdam whose expert internet sleuthing figured out that is not, in fact a zombie, but it is a giant statue of the rapper, singer and songwriter Kid Cudi, aka Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi. The Laughing Squid blog figured out that it is a promotion for his new album, Insano, which dropped last Friday.
