You may remember last year when a 4 train emerged from the yard and into service at Woodlawn with a couple of cars tagged up.
Well this time along the 2 and 5 Line at the East 180th yard in the Bronx, several cars were spotted that were bombed last month and it appears it was done by crew from Spain in Barcelona.
Bucky Turco of Animal has informed us that this photo was shot by photographer Aymann Ismail, who was on the scene after this and another subway car were spotted with tags in the yard. Animal had reported that “at least two trains had been tagged by the likes of SEN, ORUS and SHADE SNAQUE. The graffiti experts we spoke to said the style of the pieces were definitely not indigenous to the city, or good, and after some Internet sleuthing, we feel comfortable in reporting that they’re from Barcelona’s OTP crew. These writers continue a long held tradition of coming to New York and painting a train just for the flick.”
In case you’re wondering, no we’re NOT hurtling back to those “dark and dreary” days in the 70s and 80s. This happens throughout the year but the MTA pulls the trains out of service and scrubs the “offending” cars clean.
So this happened overnight…a 1 Train was graffiti bombed all in the name of Trump and not against but what seems to be FOR the disgusting, misogynistic, racist candidate.
