Living in Manhattan, I see lots of graffiti in the subway stations, on mailboxes and on passing trucks. However, this graffiti often feels “incidental” – more the outcome of a hurried prank than anything else – and as such, it’s usually not worth more than a passing glance. Manhattan might be the sexier place to live, but I’ve decided that Brooklyn definitely has a leg up in the graffiti department.
Witness these urban treasures I happened upon recently near the Lorimer St. subway stop:
A memorial for Twitch and JRock. I don’t know who they were, but I’ll remember this!
Matryoshka dolls, Williamsburg style…
A better use for guns in my opinion, too.
I don’t know where he’s going, but I feel the heat!
