This was a very interesting part of the city. I thought all the graffiti was amazing and it seems to be somewhat encouraged, since it is on pretty much all the buildings on this block. There was even a store on the corner selling cans of spray paint. We walked through the park, where all the drug deals go down, and there were two guys graffiting (is that the proper word?) a wall as two police officers strolled right on by as if it were no big deal.
Side note: What is it about kids play grounds/parks and drugs?
