Will City Wipe Out Anti-Yuppie & Gentrification Messages?

New, 67 comments

One of the most possibly depressing tidbits to come along this morning is word of City Council Member Peter Vallone's proposal to require construction sites to clean graffiti from their fences or face fines. He says: "It just seems to be the norm now for these graffiti vandals to hit construction sites." Will a lot of anti-yuppie and anti-gentrification, not to mention anti-development, sentiment be lost in the clean up? Yup, per a selection of pics pulled from the Curbed Construction Site Graffiti Hall of Fame for the photo gallery.
