PICTURE OF THE WEEK: PAINT JOB
I snapped a picture of this gem while walking down Smith Street in Brooklyn the other day. On one hand it's kind of cool looking, on the other, it's a disgrace.
Is it any wonder that graffiti is as popular today as it was in the 1970's when every subway car was spray painted. Every once in a while in my neighborhood, I'll spot the side of commercial building covered in graffiti, yet the owners ignore it.
Most people paint over it. It sends a message that this wall will not be vandalized.
Unless the owner of the truck himself is some sort of graffiti artist, you'd think, they'd give it a paint job and park the damn truck in place where vandals can't get near it.
