The Long Island City Parents Group would prefer that artists give up their campaign to save LIC's graffiti-adorned 5 Pointz and instead move the graffiti to P.S. 1. "The bare grey walls surrounding P.S. 1 like a proto-Reaganesque Cold War bunker would provide tens of thousands of square feet unadorned by windows and stairs," the group suggests in its e-mail newsletter. Of course, since the writer of the letter also refers to graffiti as "mind-numbing street art of the aerosol kind," we're not sure graffiti fans will be quick to warm to the proposal.
