Hobokenpix: More graffiti?

Hoboken Photo of the Day – 8/3/2009

Not sure about any of you – but I’ve been noticing more “magic marker” graffiti around town these days. Even the 126 bus is getting tagged. But like one reader said – horrible quality!

While I’m not a fan of graffiti at all, I remember Boston being more up to its eyeballs in tags than the New York area. Could it be that every inch of NY is so tagged that it’s more noticeable when it happens in an otherwise clean area?

Rome, Italy — every inch of that city below eight feet in the air is a scrawl of graffiti. It’s really a disgusting shame. Here, the tags are on phone boxes and bus stops. There? It’s all over a 1000 year old building.

Yeah, vandalism on old, beautiful structures is painful.

I wouldn’t mind so much if it were real, cool, artistic graffiti. The kind you find in the boros? This is all just weak crap.

Maybe we should add “can suck it” right next to these ultra-pathetic tags.
