Looking back on the Great Brookline Graffiti War, I wanted to list my top ten favorite eliminations, which I guarantee will make you smile. :-)
[All links open a new tab so you can jump around.]
The Primal Scream Tag (everyone’s favorite tag), Dummer Street Wall (all but ended that street’s perennial graffiti problem), Washington Square Roof (the stores below thanked me the day afterward when I told them), The Bricks Next to Emack and Bolio’s (I love that place! and my first successful brick painting), The Evil Beth Pinchas Temple Tag (that was a righteous removal and the rabbis thanked me for doing it on a Friday afternoon - as they could not), The Tag Inside the Men’s Room of The Abbey (yes, there is indoor graffiti!), The Shrine of the Lost Bunny (neither me nor the town could find it for months!), The Gulf Station Walls (huge awful tags, and everyone’s favorite story), The Sad Mailbox on Walnut Street (the first time I painted an entire mailbox, this photo shows why that mattered so much), and The High Alley Walls in Brookline Village (the first time I went above eye level to remove tags).
Who says graffiti removal is boring?
