Re: The South Bronx of the 1980's

That brings to mind an incident that occurred in 1974 during my commuting days - I used to commute from 179th Street to Lex-53rd and one morning I got me a shiny new R44 - #124. I took my usual window seat (on the left side) and we took off. When we got to Parsons - I noticed something - I could NOT see out of the window! At all! When I got off at Lex-53rd - I saw why - the ENTIRE side of that car was painted - end to end and roof to sill - by one "talented" (I use the term liberally, as this was a very complex and intricate mural) vandal by the name of "Killer I" - in black accented with bright yellow and orange. He surrounded this moniker with all kinds of strange faces, shapes, images and symbols. I still can't fathom how he managed to execute this - would have needed a ladder or at least access to a flat surface in order to do it.

The "Bad Old Days" for sure...
