Dope-Ass Graffiti Part II

In one of my very first posts, I told of overhearing a young tourist on the subway indicating that she wanted to see some "dope-ass" graffiti, and I reflected on the social and symbolic importance of this particular art form. Well, the dopest of the dope-ass graffiti that I have found can be viewed on the #7 subway line between Queensboro Plaza and Vernon-Jackson. From this above-ground train, you'll see building upon building with some of the most colorful, artistic graffiti in town. In some cases, you'll marvel at the literal heights some of these "artistes" must have had to scale in order to create their work. It's really a sight to see, and unlike our $20 per visit museums, all it costs is a subway fare.
