Photo of the Day: Removing Graffiti in Park Slope

A team of men power washed tags off a wall on Eighth Avenue.

Graffiti is an iconic aspect of New York City.

Although Park Slope is considered the picturesque family neighborhood, the grittier side of Brooklyn can be seen all throughout the area.

A wall on the building next to the Montauk Club on Eighth Avenue was bombed a while ago with a big tag painted on the bricks in white spray paint.

However, on Friday morning a team of two men from the city’s Graffiti Free NYC Program took a power washer to the spray paint and removed it within minutes. 

Graffiti Free NYC Program offers free graffiti removal to properties throughout the five boroughs. If you would like graffiti removed from your property, contact 311.

Today, upload photos of graffiti in Park Slope to this article, our Facebook page or e-mail them to Will.Yakowicz@Patch.com

Thanks for this information. I noticed the building on the corner of 9th st. and ppw has some recent graffiti. Terrible. The owner should install a camera and have these punks thrown in jail.

Yes, I have watched that corner building get COVERED with graffiti in the past few months. It started with one tag, now it's a canvas.

He should install a sniper.

Yeah for graffiti free NYC ! You guys rock. Graffiti is highly destructive and expensive. Although clean-up of graffiti vandalism is important, at some point we need to consider other strategies such as graffiti prevention. If I've missed something, ping me at www.defacingamerica.com.
