Graffiti in Greenpointby on
It’s a real shame that our wonderful neighborhood is making press for being covered in graffiti. The NY Times recently published an article, The Writing Is on the Walls, and the Signs and the Trees, covering the epidemic that is graffiti in Greenpoint.
It can be found in all the expected places–storefronts, signs, bathroom walls–but now it’s gone so far as to cover trees, statues and the sides of homes. Is it a local problem, kids being kids? Or could it be graffiti tourism like the article suggests–out-of-towners coming to Brooklyn and tagging a wall to feel like a real New Yorker.
Either way, what can we as a neighborhood do to make it stop? Leave your thoughts and comments below.
