The Word On The Street, Part I: Best Anti-Graffiti Campaign Ever

As spotted today on East 120th Street. Well done!

New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: 404 McGuinness

After yesterday’s deluge I decided to get out, enjoy some sunshine and see what, if anything, new in the way of art was “up” at our very own McGuinness Power Brake Service. There were a few new additions, but this one (which is located on Clay Street) especially tickled my fancy. Check it out!

The Word On The Street: Peace

There’s a lovely, brand-spanking mural courtesy of Shiro and friends on the premises of Cachaco (located at Huron and Manhattan Avenue, whose pita sandwich with spicy eggplant I strongly recommend). Check it out!

The Word On The Street: Times Nine

This vision can be found on North 4 Street Street. As you can see in the last photo, yours truly was not the only person who found this amusing. It rather reminds me of Beeteljuice. If calls his name three times, he will manifest. Here no less than nine solicitations have been employed— with considerably less success. Something which crossed my mind during my peregrinations today was how many vacant storefronts I saw. Invariably they were covered in graffiti. This leads one to wonder, perhaps, if these spaces were occupied this would mitigate the problem somewhat. Thus, it could be surmised that the rapaciousness of landlords can and does have a hand in the “graffiti epidemic” hereabouts— and, contrary to what the pillars of our community may believe: this is not simply a matter of vandalism for vandalism’s sake. Think about it.

Props/hat tip: goes out to Bitchcakes for bringing this to my attention!
