It’s been over a year since the murder of actress and playwright Nicole duFresne. Her tragic, killing happened in the early morning after-hours of January 27, 20005, in the Lower East Side of New York City. The murder was shocking to us in part because it took place just a

The street artist (or group of artists?) who goes by the moniker “Faro Inc.” has made a name for himself with a body of work that consists of wheat-pastes depicting his signature mummy character in various guises and permutations. Here’s some fresh work on Prince St., between Broadway and Mercer
In the same Orchard St. tenement stairwell as the “Star 78” graf shown below (or on the next page) is this illustrated character we’ve dubbed “Blockhead.” Very cool. We would love to know who the artist behind this image is.
Love this black-and-white “up” in the stairwell of an entrance to a tenement building on Orchard St. in the Lower East Side.
There is an interesting article today in U.K. newspaper the Guardian about the changing urban landscape of Melbourne, Australia, as the city tidied itself in preparation of the Commonwealth Games. The clean-up is a result of an initiative to remove graffiti and street art. The report, titled “The writing on

A clever bit of efficiency in stealth tagging is the practice of using markers to write the tag on a blank U.S. Postal Service adhesive label, then sticking the label to target surface/location. Above is a detail-shot of an example we recently spotted on the Uptown “C” Train platform at
This graf by “Grate” adds some unqiue, stylistic symetry to the tag by curling the first and last letters. Background Note There’s lots of skyline and rooftop graf in that semi-real, un-neighborhood-like downtown Manhattan neighborhood known as NoHo (for “NOrth of HOuston St.,” as opposed to SoHo and “SOuth of
We’re not sure how to decipher this tag in Noho, NYC. Our best guess is that it’s either “On Time” or “One Time.” In any case, we’ve never seen a tag resembling it anywhere else in lower Manhattan. The angular styling of the letters makes this one stand out from
“Fyter” sky graf just east of Lafayette St., in NoHo, in downtown Manhattan, NYC. Love the spelling of the tag and the pink hue of Krylon. Background Note There’s lots of skyline and rooftop graf in that semi-real, un-neighborhood-like downtown Manhattan neighborhood known as NoHo (for “NOrth of HOuston St.,”
There’s lots of skyline and rooftop graf in that semi-real, un-neighborhood-like downtown Manhattan neighborhood known as NoHo (for “NOrth of HOuston St.,” as opposed to SoHo and “SOuth of HOuston St.”). Here’s a good example. The nabe’s chic decrepitude and broken-up cobblestone streets are a vermeer of authenticity behind which
This popular graf spot in an abandoned downtown NYC lot has been heating up with new ups recently like “DaysFares” above. There a “Pigs Crew” tag embedded in the initial “D,” but we haven’t seen their tags before. This is a massive up, and this location at East 1st St.
