Second-floor graffiti scrawled in Columbia Heights
Typical spray-and-run graffiti hits furtively take place on ground and train-track level. Some scaling was required to adorn the second floor of this Columbia Heights building, which houses BloomBars, an arts nonprofit that "doesn't have the resources to paint over [the] building every 2 wks," according to a Twitter response to the Daily Gripe.
Whether the culprit is an aspiring Cool Disco Dan or someone with a spray can and idle time, he or she had to climb on top of next-door carryout El Rinconcito Deportivo to execute the white bubble letter graffiti peeking out over the second floor north wall of 3222 11th St. NW.
Sean Wieland submitted his Gripe to us about it just before 10 a.m. this morning. DC 311 acknowledged it and issued service request ID 11-00064758 via its See Click Fix profile. We'll keep you posted on the status.
The Daily Gripe also wants to know your take:
Graffiti and tagging are often hallmarks of highly populated cities. Does graffiti bother you or do you think it comes with the territory? Have you reported graffiti and not seen any results, or does it keep popping up in your area? What are some hot spots for it?
