Brooklyn?

That's strange. I'm pretty sure it wasn't Brooklyn, but maybe the same artist has tagged Manhattan...or I saw it in a book, lol.

Kind of takes a bit of the fun out of it, though.

A wise person once said about graffiti, that the people who did it should be ashamed because when they had the chance to create something beautiful, they made something ugly. I think she meant tagging though.

Wait, that was a person in a movie called "The Gryphon".

Ah well. Wise saying anyway.

ummm okay audrey wait swears a bunch but its a fantastic book
the book theif swears in german
i am the messenger swears a ton
umm the john greene books swear a kittle but i think an abundance of Katherines has the least amount
the luxe series is like a way toned down historical fiction mystery romance gossip girl
wayyyyy better than gossip girl
and thats it

I live in a small city in NC, but we have some cool street art. Someone goes around and sprays these little turtles and fish everywhere. We also have some really amazing murals downtown. They rock. :)
