The Word On The Street, Part II: Special Crosstown Local Edition

Courtesy Cunts! nys

Last night the Mister and I went out to dinner for his birthday. This required patronizing the G train. In transit inspiration (if one can call it that) struck!

Discharge only nys

P.S.: I spied the above missive at Court Square on the trip home. Note how the MTA seems to have left a nice big blank area for, um, “feedback”.

The Word On The Street: AMEN!

TRUTH! nys

I have seen a great deal of graffiti over the years. This is arguably one of if not the most brilliant of the lot. The message in and of itself is a winner, but what really puts this missive over the top is its placement: Lorimer Street at Bedford Avenue. Anyone who is familiar with this area can attest a great deal of drinking (both legally sanctioned and otherwise) comes to pass in this area. I have never seen Jesus among the quaffers— but who really knows? The ways of the son of god are mysterious! Bravo, anonymous hooligan. WELL DONE!

I am pleased to announce that not only has  “TTB” been successfully spelled out using Greenpoint’s medium of choice (empty liquor bottles) but the anonymous artist at work play has moved onto the next subway grate!

Hmm. I wonder what message our mystery artist wishes to share? I am going to go out on a limb here and predict something along the lines  of the following….

From The New York Shitty Inbox: A Dispatch From The NYPL


This comes via an anonymous tipster who writes:

…noticed this amazing piece of graffiti this morning. the renaming of the branch in essence rewrote history, dismissing the significance of all previous efforts to create a public institution…
