Tag Tuesday: Street Spots
The streets in NYC offer many different spots to bust a tag, but there are some spots that are considered classic to rock on. On the top of that list is mailboxes. Tags just pop on that signature Post Office blue. This is a staple spot for dropping tags. Brick walls make a dope backdrop and are part of the New York City landscape. A large portion of the city’s building have brick as part of their structure, and let’s face it, chrome and white paint glows on its surface.
Doors provide the perfect surface for mop tags. You can’t beat the drippy goodness you get on doors and spray paint tags are clean on them. Shipping containers and garbage containers travel. These are ideal for your tag to travel around the city without any effort other than the initial tag. You can tag it in Brooklyn and it may end up in the Bronx. Lastly, the traffic box. The dark green is perfect for silver, yellow, or other light colored tags. They sit on poles at crosswalks, this means high visibility. When you think about it, I guess the real classic spot is anywhere on the street, as long as you’re getting up.
