No, these are not kinds of soft drinks. There has been a rash of tagging by two people in the truxton circle area; Inca and Nehi. My guess is that they are part of 5th and O, or another hood gang. Their tags are everywhere in the Truxton Circle area. Any ideas on who these people are, and how we can stop their tagging?
From Bloomingdale resident Sara:
Mayor Fenty and a "Clean DC" team / Graffiti Busters were in Bloomingdale / North Capitol Main Street Wednesday afternoon at the corner of North Capitol and R street removing graffiti on the almost end row house of the on the south side of the North Cap and R NW corner. This is the 3 story house that abuts the one store vacant "business" - where the "artists" can stand on the roof of the one story building to paint the 2nd/3rd story side of the row house.
Major Fenty mentioned this - and a short news/video clip was shown - on his weekly "ask the Mayor" segment on NBC Channel 4 local morning news. (on Thursday mornings)
They were using a a pressure washer to blast off the paint vs just covering it up again. It was reported this house had been hit several times.
Noticed also was that Graffiti Busters were very prompt in removing huge graffiti off the historic Fire House
at Quincy Place NW. Other smaller graffiti in the area remains, but the graffiti on the Fire House was hugely obvious on the commuter route.
See graffiti? Call 727-1000 and ask for the Graffiti removal. The graffiti around the Bloomingdale Business district has been called in.
