"Tagging" Incident Confirmed at Oval Fountain
The other day there was a notice by a Stuy Town resident that graffiti was found on the Oval Fountain. I went there this morning, and while the top portion was free of any writing, the bottom portion has a different color and looked rapidly "made over" by personnel who wish to obliterate its writing. Not everything is completely obliterated and some minor writing is still evident.
This is the first time I'm aware of that graffiti has appeared on the Oval Fountain. I've found it someplace else, however.
UPDATED 7/6/16: The many, and I mean many, "chalk" marks on the third bench, west side, near the exit at the Fountain are NOT chalk marks. I was wondering why they were continually there, and now I know: graffiti! Yes, they are only removable by sand-blasting or painting over, which would look odd as the rest of the benches are of wood. An even more flagrant instance of graffiti smudges on the Oval Fountain. Calling Rick and his signs....
