Greetings from Espoland

The Times has a City Room post today titled A Sociologist’s Look at Graffiti, a serious discussion with a Baruch College sociologist who studies graffiti and graffiti artists. The post is illustrated with this Espo mural, which used to face the Williamsburg Bridge from atop the Oliva refrigerator building on Bedford and South 5th. It was always one of favorite works – somewhere I probably have some color postcards showing it.
