Here is a look of nyc back in the graffiti days.

Retro WPIX news report takes you back to graffiti in New York in the summer of 1985 | New York's PIX11 / WPIX-TV

I remember everywhere I look there were graffiti. Glad they cleaned it up.

NYC graf art was one of the greatest culture scenes that ever existed in the United States.


Its still being replicated to this day in many European, Asian and South American cities.

Long live Style Wars.

The video showed mostly just tags, which are really just scribbles of a name done by young kids trying to emulate actual graffiti writers. They should have shown some of the beautiful, elaborate pieces done on trains.

You can paint all you want on your property. When these criminals paint on public or private property they should be arrested and fined.
