…The Bad and the Ugly

THE BAD

Untitled-1Graffiti is creeping back. Recently, workers had to remove tags from a brick wall next to the tiled arch on Perry Street off Bleecker.  Go a block East to West 4th and Charles, and see large graffiti covering the building wall.

 Is it a sign of the times?Are we returning to the bad old days?
If you see more examples cropping up, please take a picture and send it to us at westvillageword@earthlink.net.

THE UGLY

Scaffolding1It seems that we have so much construction and renovation going on that every block has at least one scaffolded building.  The results of all this work will probably be wonderful, but it sure is ugly.
