The walls up in Inwood — home to veteran NYC writers and their guests — are a treasure trove of graffiti and graffiti history. The image featured above was painted by native New Yorker Panic Rodriguez, who grew up writing graffiti in the 80’s. Several more images that Ana Candelaria and I captured this past Sunday follow:
Bronx-bred, Jersey City-based Ree Vilomar
Classic Bronx-bred writer Clyde
Veteran Uptown writers Keon and Rocky 184
Bronx-based TC5 crew member Sound7
All of these walls can be found on and off 10th Avenue between 207th Street and 2016th Streets, off the 1 line.
