Political Message

Todd of Postcards from Hell's Kitchen and CityGirl15 of Gramercy Cafe recently posted photos of political messages they saw in NYC and they reminded me of a photo I took almost a year ago at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal. It was a small graffiti scribbled on a giant poster blanketing the wooden fence surrounding the renovation site. If you click on the image above, you will see a full size version of the photo and what the graffiti said.

If you were to scribble a graffiti on a public space (not that I'm advocating it), what would you write?

I would write: Stop the #^*#! war NOW!

I'd write, "HAL must be destroyed!!"

Lynette said...

I would write, "Become a City Daily Photo Blogger for your mental well-being."

my tag is a little self portrait of myself....usually I save it for when I "tag" things like napkins, or scarp paper....but I suppose it would work for tagging something public too.

I doubt I would ever graffiti, but the most obscure one I've ever seen was about 15 years ago in the ladies room of a Chicago restaurant/bar. "Iranian hotel managers suck."
So bizarre it's stuck with me all these years. Imagine the story that must be behind that gem!

That's great, I love what that person wrote! I think I'd have to give some more thought to what I'd write. I'm not very creative! Great idea for a post!

I'd write about George Bush. And it wouldn't be flattering...

Couldn't have said it better.

I was going to post a photo of Cheney today with the caption "Didn't know he had a heart"

I'd have a hard time defacing public or private property since it angers me when I see it. But then again if it was a conservative political message...!!

I love it!!
Last year, I saw something like this too. On the UWS. There was some schafolding in front of a new buidling in construction. It was a rendering of the new space, with people walking in the street. Someone added little bubble comment (comic style). It was hilarious. you could litteraly walk and see the story unfold. I need to find these pics.
