High Line Backlash Continues

New, 5 comments

The New York Times checks in on the "buffing," or covering up, of the graffiti along the High Line. So far, 18 of 20 buildings identified as "candidates for graffiti removal" have agreed to let the city clean them off. People who are upset about this say the city is erasing art, and that the art is part of the High Line's history. Sorry, graffiti fans. But you can probably find something similar in a nearby Chelsea art gallery for five or six times the price. [NYT; previously]
