90's NYC Subway Station Graffiti Revealed via Fresh Paint NYC

By - Friday, January 20th, 2012

Our friends at Fresh Paint NYC just discovered a time capsule of early 1990’s graffiti revealed on an elevated MTA platform. At an undisclosed train station the advertisements were removed, uncovering a treasure trove of preserved vandalism circa 1990. With the zero-tolerance policy of the MTA nowadays, it’s hard to fathom a time when subway stations were blanketed with coats of spray paint, layers of throw-ups and tags accumulated over the years. This gives readers a glimpse of what daily life on the NYC subway was like some twenty years ago. Scrolling through the photographs above we spotted remnants of some notable graffiti writers like Ket, Ven, Bruz, Air, and Spesh. Source: Fresh Paint NYC
