@149st: Saving New York's Subway Graffiti
I recently attended the National Youth Poetry Slam championship and, along with a hundred others, cheered as a riotous, curly-haired New Yorker sneered, "You keep your walls/poets have the air. The website
is devoted to reclaiming those walls, but with the same fervor in mind. Dedicated to "the preservation of the history of New York City's subway graffiti," @149st
provides a laudable visual and written narrative/archive of the subject, demanding recognition of this ephemeral art form and socio-historical chronicle.
