An aside: I loved the graffiti we encountered on the tour, and I was sorely tempted to use one of these photos to illustrate my Luxist piece, but it would have been off-point.
I’ve long been fascinated with street art, probably owing to the fact that I was loosely part of a group of bad-ass kids that “tagged up” in the early 90s. I never wielded the can myself, but one guy rendered my first name in awesome graffiti-style on my t-square. (Bronx Science required all students to take mechanical drawing. I did an exploded view of a cigarette lighter as my final project. And I transferred out not long after that.)
