Ah nice stuff...the good old stuff, when bombing was simple...
JOEY TPA - THE PUBLIC ANIMALS: 2nd Nov 2007 - 17:27 GMT
Here's a tidbit...even Danny missed it...THE EL-5 tag inside the "CA" That is ROTO, the original leader and head of NCB, (No Comp Boys) brother of SNAC, NCB. *wink* JOEY - THE TPA ORIGINALS.
JOEY TPA - THE PUBLIC ANIMALS: 11th Nov 2007 - 17:09 GMT
Next to the Crime piece is a nice bit of nostalgia...the "TI-149" two-letter thro-up...aka MOVIN', TC, a BMT killah!

THE DC-10 TAG NEXT TO THE CA(CAPTAIN AMERICA) DC-10 ALSO WROTE ROBERT 1, HE WROTE WITH SO-ONE AND SI-ONE, TEAR-2,UNCLE JOHN 178 QUEENS 1974
Pros One..1980: 15th Dec 2007 - 02:30 GMT
I never met "CA" aka Captain America, But I know he was from Queens. I hear he died. I think his name was Peter Seneca. I was a young dude when "CA" was doing his thing. His tag was up everywhere. Hime Bobby 85, Shiek, tage 1. They had the unique school style. Anybody know the truth about "CA"
JOEY TPA CREW: 20th Dec 2007 - 07:28 GMT
Queens is right, and good catch on the "DC-10" tag. The Captain disappeared, Tage is no longer with us, Duck 77 is still around, works in a moving company, still living in Woodside, UJ-178....off to another land, Tear..same thing. Bobby 85 also gone from this world. Glad to see Queens catching it's dues.....actually had more kings out of Queens than the Bronx, but thanks to a couple of books in the 80's, Queens was way underrepresented and the Bronx got the press. Set the "bible" straight. Just a few to mention from Queens that took over...Vinny, IZ, DEAN (THe Bad Yard Boys), Jester (The Crew), EX~1, JOEY (The Public Animals), DUKE-9, PI-2 (CIPPY), EDDIE 108, PRO-PAL, SON ONE, CONAN, LADY PINK, LADY HEART, MISS MAGGS, SKY-2, KB (The Super Squad), VADE, EZO, SPICER, FDT-56, K56, 2MAD (Crazy Young Artists CYA), LIL' SOUL, MINGO, SIKE, NEON, VE, KR TSS, DON-1 MAFIA CREW....and the list goes on and on and on....I haven't even touch Brooklyn...also unrepresented in those "bibles" of graffiti. All due props to the Bronx, but the BEE-QUE (Brooklyn Queens) population was greater in numbers and in Kings.

Awesome old skool!!. My man REVOLT with the shotz. Cool JOEY,TPA. for pointing out the TAKI-149 throw-up circa 1974/75. TAKI-149 one of the great old skool Kings of the 1 train, and a brother Soul Artist member. CRIME(aka.AZTEC) was another major player on the 1 train back in 1975-77, GO-Club allies!!!.

SAR TMB: 16th Jun 2009 - 14:05 GMT
DC-10 also wrote ROBERT, he was from Richmond Hill. He wrote with SO-ONE and SI-ONE. There were a lot of writers on the J and A lines from the mid 70's that people don't remember. DAM-ONE, COLT, KEEP 112, COOK, ROCKY-ONE, SIKE and ST-3.
I remember top to bottom VINNY pieces on all the garbage trucks back then also. FLIP, FIT, DIME 139, MOP, SCOPE aka FADE, SIKO who wrote BT-2 and TEK-2, his old partner was RUST, then KIK. A lot of the IRTS have been documented from teh earliest of times. The TB-TOP-NCB-TMB-TC crews dominated the BMTs. Wish more photos were documented from that time.
TRIP 2: 29th Jun 2009 - 18:10 GMT
I grew up with VINNY, SHORTY 13 and DUSTER, those were the days, Ozone Park was our home turf. My "career" as TRIP 2 was very brief but i was friends with these guys for many years.I know DUSTER (Larry) died from aids back in the late 80s SHORTY (kevin) was in prison the last time i heard of him and VINNY was homeless, roming the streets of Ozone Park.
TRIP2: 30th Jun 2009 - 17:19 GMT
I was close friends with VINNY, SHORTY13 AND DUSTER. Those were good times back in the old neighborhood. We spent alot of time hanging out on the corner of Liberty Ave and 97 Street in Ozone park. Anybody out there from those days lets talk...
SAR TMB: 8th Jul 2009 - 04:34 GMT
VINNY IS OK, LIVING WITH HIS SISTER, IZ THE WIZ JUST PASSED AWAY. DUSTER-LARRY AKA LARS FROM MARS, IS GONE FOR A LONG TIME. UNCLE JOHN 178 JUST GOT OUT OF PRISON, THERE WERE RUMORS THAT HE WAS DEAD. DUKE9 IS STILL AROUND FROM BACK THEN DIME 139 IS IN FLORIDA. BLITZ WAS FROM 102 PARK AND KICK 112. KI-3, KU.
Curious...: 9th Jul 2009 - 02:59 GMT
@Joey Tpa: So as far as the original leaders of NCB they definitely didn't include that informer-vandal squad fat snitch JACK right? The reason I ask this is becuse I never saw anything from him only the truly "mentioned" kings roto and snac.

SAR TMB: 18th Jul 2009 - 02:38 GMT
i knew them, but didnt hang out with them in 102 park.they were older then me, vinny is 50,larry larson,Duster aka larz from marz, would be close to the same if he lived. I was close friends to mike martin aka iz the wiz. he died last month from a heart attack,I am supposed to be spreading some of his ashes in 102 park next month. and I knew sach also from oz park
TRIP2: 19th Jul 2009 - 23:28 GMT
Very nice drawing from VINNY, a real blast from the past !!!, are you in contact with him at all? if so can you give him my cell number ? i would really like to talk to him, I would like to help him to setup his own website. VINNY is not getting his due respect on the internet and i can help him with that.

Risco: 2nd Jan 2010 - 17:48 GMT
Great history of Queens writers, Sar! All those old timers, like Stoe, Dam, Colt, Tear, CA, etc. were my first influences with their street tagging. That's going back to 76, before I ever set foot in the yards. Those tags all around Queens is what got me into writing. I know about Tear and CA, but were those other guys ever up on the subways, or were they pretty much just surface taggers. You never here anything about them, so I was thinking maybe they were just local writers.
PRO - Partner at large: 3rd Jan 2010 - 01:41 GMT
Great photos. Takes me back. VINNY and CA were kings. I recall seeing 4Stoe on the J's and EE's, Hung out allot with Mop1.Anyone remember a few of these guys from Queens - Way1-Dace1-Shaun67-Romantic2-and Duck.Haven't seen those guys in years.
Dc 10? is this the same guy from the D's? He did a lower case D from what I remember. Do any one remember IC and RJ? Where are those guys?
PRO - Partner at large: 4th Jan 2010 - 02:13 GMT
Like the photos. This guy name Eric from @149th street sent those 2 over to me. Guy did a book and said he'd place me in there, but he didn't. " Oh well fuck it"... no big deal. Any body remember Uncle John's boys DANCE2 & TOP CAT 156?
Colt I remeber seeing it up on the GG's. Any one remeber Flick 1? That guy had nice style and hit other lines. He did a few trains with Tracy on the 4's. he sort of did Flint707 bubble style with a twist. Any one remember those DP throw up on the J's & m's? that guy was a king...Who was he?
SON started on the ee's f's and J's. I had a few pictures of his top to bottoms. Went with Rj a few times. Once I get to new york Ill head stright to Clints house for my photos albums. I took allot of pictures when I went to the trains.
Any one remember Wave2 - Bic 2 - Joey 161 -Eddie 108 - DS 3 - East 1 - Fo - LOW 1 BYB - He 3 -Move 1? Lets not Forget ROGER!
SAR TMB: 4th Jan 2010 - 02:57 GMT
Fade on the buses was SCOPE, Thats him. 4STOE is STOE, his T used to come back in front of the S. I have pictures of some of his tags. Dance2, HE-3 also.
PRO - BYB: 10th Jan 2010 - 02:31 GMT
Sar ya look closer you can see a BP throw up next to that IC. Bp was Son/rob's undercover. I wrote with IZ. I found a few of these Photos floating in space on the internet world...
I met this guy when I was a kid. He was an icon on the Trains. I heard he's
SAR TMB: 10th Jan 2010 - 16:16 GMT
I REMEMBER A PRO-FESSIONAL , SON-SATIONAL PIECE, I THINK FUZZ HAS COPIES OF IT. I WILL TRY TO LOCATE THEM. YEAH I REMEMBER BP THROWUPS TOO,
YOU STILL HAVE AN OUTLINE OF A THROWUP ON THE STATION BY THE 7 YARDS OPPOSITE CITI FIELD. GHOST AND I SAW IT BOUT A YEAR AGO. THEY BUFFED IT BUT YOU CAN READ IT CLEAR AS DAY. TRACY 168 DOMINATED SHIT,HIM KING2,PNUT,CHI CHI, THEY WERE ONE OF THE FIRST GROUPS OF GUYS THAT BOMBED AS A CLIQUE,THEM AND THE CRAZY 5, THEY WERE ALL FRIENDS. I REMEMBER CAINE,TAGE,ROGER,CHINO174,FUZZ,TRACY,CA,VINNY,BOMBING THE 7'S...YOU AND SON RAN THAT LINE FOR A WHILE
I hate to be the one to tell you this ,but I had heard that son-one had passed away. he did a bunch of tags and throwups around Roosevelt avenue in 1990-91.That was the last I had heard about him.
PRO - Partner at large: 11th Jan 2010 - 05:37 GMT
I'm trying to find him. A guy name Neo told me he been hanging out with Son but once he told me he said his namw was Keith... I knew it was'nt him. Are you in touch with Son? I knew once he moved her, but he was more a friend of Son's. He moved into Son's nieghborhood.
I knew Ghost. I beleave I met him in the 70's - I knew Roger and met Chino 174. Roger was around before Caine. Chino and Checker were killing.
PRO - Partner at large: 12th Jan 2010 - 02:58 GMT
Wow SAR where in the world did you find those?? I remember doing that top to bottom in 77 or 78 .... I did five of those in the tunnel with Rob between main street and sha. I you even have my throw up? You have Cippys stuff. I went with Cippy a few times.
Ask him about Diego. SIKE was all over the J'trains. I think he was a black guy who caught his stuff in Jamaica, the guy got over. If you look above the SIKE you will see a IC . He was partners with Rj. SON and him had done a few top to bottoms on the J's.
I remember TO but what that stuff on the other car? DANCE2.. I have a piece he did on the 7 train which came out pretty nice. Once I get to Nyc ill post it . Clint has my pictures.
DS and Le were all over the RR for a time. Anyone remember Ds? Some in the internet world sent this to me. Tracy was up. But in my opinion Pnut was better
I dont know who this guy is but its a nice Picture:
I was king of the isides of the 7 line. Do you have any of that? Did you find the PRO-FESSIONAL & SON-SATIONAL photo?
Where have the years gone?
SAR TMB: 12th Jan 2010 - 05:02 GMT

What I relly like most about your page - # 1 you do a very important thing - you share past with us golden oldies unlike these jerk offs that perfer to hide photos up there asses and brag that they have this and that.
I was intouch with one asshole who told me he had a bunch of my stuff. But in order for him to forward them on to me He wanted me to answer a few questions about the past and forward him a few sketches on paper. After I did so he didn't send me shit and return an E-mail-telling me I had to pay for my shit! I will not say any names here but his face is all over the internet and the guy seems like a politician in the Graffiti world.

Caine was not a king of the 7's nor was he any inspiration of mine. Roger&Chino were the owers of that line before Caine. Caine only had the best art. If you knew what I know about what kind of guy he was your heads would spin. Roger-Chino-Blade-Comet-Tracy were tops in my book. I beleave Lee got the idea of painting a whole train with a theme from Caine1 - but Caine had some ugly letters where as Lees letters were nice. Not sure if that Hurst beside that Blade piece was a Oe piece. It looks to me to be a Oi. He used that style on the 7 trains a few times.

Hey Sar, Long time no speak. 20 years to be exact. I accidentally came upon site looking for old pictures of Brooklyn. Needless to say my mind was blown when coming up this thread. You posted some gems up in here! I was wondering if you do me a solid and hook me up with shots of that wall that Fuzz , you and I did on the LIRR tracks up near Jackson Heights in 89. Ket gave me a really bad angle shot of it a few years back. I can barely make any of it out. That was a hot wall. If you don't want to post it up online please hit me up on Flickr. My user name is Vendalism.
Good to see many of you old school cats are still around. Respect to the old school and RIP, IZ!

Bringing Fuzz(70) out of retirement in 1989 to hit brand new R-68 subway cars at Sheepshead Bay Layup. In a matter of a few days we hit Sheepshead Bay, Flushing Yard, Halsey and 36st on the GG. A very fun time to paint. So many nice layups and yards that most writers at the time were afraid to hit and not enough Vandal Squad to watch them all.

Vendalism AOK: 20th Feb 2010 - 18:15 GMT
@RCA. It is that ideology in your post directed to me which helped the MTA win the war with graff on trains. The MTA used all sorts of propaganda to scare writers from hitting trains in the late 80's. From taking trains out service if bombed, to the city making the laws a felony for graff. The fact of the matter was that in 1989 hitting clean trains was as easy as painting trains in the 70's. I have painted hundreds upon hundereds of clean trains in in 88-89 and have photographs of almost all. I also have painted so many in a night that the MTA was forced for them to run for days. See here http://www.flickr.com/photos/9278991@N04/3562839835/
The bottom line is painting clean trains was an adventure, a thrill similar to playing an extreme sport. A feeling that something you cannot get from painting a legal wall. Whether people see it or not, the majority of people that do it get there photo's. Graff never lasted forever when even the trains were bombed. I know because I had t2B wholecars of mine dissed by other writers before even pulling out of the layups.

Ven, what up?
Vendalism AOK: 21st Feb 2010 - 06:24 GMT
@Sar. Your right that was the first time I went painting with Fuzz and it was Ront who was there. I hung out with Fuzz once and it may of been Bruz or Nato who introduced me to him. It's hard to remember because I was on some crazy graff mission pretty much everyday back then. If I remember correctly we walked the tracks down to Metropolitan. I would love to see photo's of what we did. So once again if you don't mind, post them up!
It's a shame we did not paint any clean trains again after that day. Not sure why you weren't on the missions we did with Fuzz to the 7yard, Halsey , Sheepshead, 36st. I guess in retrospect it was not that easy to get hold of people back when their were no cellphones, internet. Crazy to think how much technology has changed in 20 years.

Speaking of insides. I agree some of my favorite memories was taking the 2&5 from Brooklyn to the Bronx and walking through the cars every few stops all the way there. They never buffed the insides on those cars. Their will still 70's TMT tags from Tean, Kade running up until l988.

@Trike. I heard you have a crazy stash too. Let's see some F line ding dong action! A lot of my flicks which I caught and traded have been pillaged all over the internet over the years. I can assure that you see hundreds of them on Flickr and 12oz. I would eventually like to make a book with the others in my collection which have not been slutted around. Then also a good chunk of my collection is what I have gotten in trades from others. I don't want to disrespect anyone who I traded with by posting their flicks up. I let them make their own choice to do so.

In the meantime I found this mind blowing site which is like Google Earth but shows closeup satellite images of NYC in 1924. Since we seem to be into NYC nostalgia, this is about as nostalgic as it gets. Check out the train lines and yards back then. Seriously bugged out.

I'm going to post a mixed bag of stuff up on here. I know a lot of you older school school cats then me want to see the 70's and early 80's. So do I!.. but knowing all the history of graff on trains is important to the game we all played. We all followed the tradition and code of those before us. Styles built on styles from generations before us. This is something that has been clearly lost since graffiti disappeared on trains. As Sar mentioned above what happened to handstyles and throw up styles in graff these days. It's sad but the truth is getting up and style do not have much in common these days.
Vendalism AOK: 24th Feb 2010 - 14:46 GMT
at WH. Yes I love the Big Shot. The Blue fillin's with Yellow outline is so fresh. Soe definitely had some dope style. I remember catching flicks of a burner t2b he did on the 2&5's in 85's with brown fillin and white outline. I have not seen a lot of his work but what I have seen was very hot.

Holy shit! That Son blew my mind! really nice picz Mr.Sar. The Son was done separately from the other two writers. Looks like Joey backgrounded a Small Fuzz. I don't know who Soe is but it looks like it could be a another one of Sons side names because it looks like his style.
Vendalism AOK: 24th Feb 2010 - 14:52 GMT
Now that Baby 168 handstyle is super fresh. For sure one of my favorite writers. When I came on the scene in 84, Haz who is also up in the pic was king of the 4's and also had lot's of up on the R-42 D's(We called them Bulldogs out in Brooklyn). Makes a lot sense because Grand Concourse was Haz's stomping ground.

Does anyone have good shots of this cars from "Dreams Dont' Die"
This one definitely was not painted on one of those R-16 scrap cars sitting in the M-Yard for a few years. The first "King 65" piece Dondi paints in the beginning was on a scrap car. I know because I have a flick of that car cut in half and laying on it side in 1983. This car is an R-28 and they were not scrapping these and this car is freshly painted with no broken windows. I'm curious if this car ran in service. Anyone here know?
I have seen that video with Caine and those Dtec's from the 7 line. Really sick video. Very grainy though. I'm surprised that has not appeared on youtube yet. I thought that was leaked around a bit.

STAR and WH: I also heard about that NYU student film featuring alot of CAINE1. I heard you can get it at NYU. I dont know what its called.
RCA: JONNY B and CHISY are two of the most famous street writers, not many people know that JOHNNY B also hit trains in the mid 70's under the tag GEN. He was up on the G'E'F's and 7's. His brother also wrote but his tag escapes me. KB knows it. A funny thing is that when JOHNNY B and CHISY were be sought after by the men in blue, they quickly changed their tags to GEN and GARD. Different tags, same tag style, I'm sure that threw em off...lol.
RCA:There is that famous photo of John Travolta sitting in a RR...on the door to the right of him is a SOLO1 tag. He an old schooler from the Astoria projects, used to write with BIO, BC.

There was a movie filmed in the M Yard around 1980/81 or so. It was some kind of martial arts movie, I believe. I don't know the name, or if it was ever actually released or not. I know about because I went to the yard on night and watched them film. Me and JK were entering the yard from the bus depot roof, and watched as they filmed a fight scene right in front of all the trains laid up. We didn't get to bomb that night, but it was a least interesting to watch.

Damn, this forum is fantastic ! I wasn't anybody important back in the day, but was around. So nice to see PRO on here ! PRO, I remember when you and SON got busy under the Whitestone bridge, think it was summer of 1980. You had nice red & silver fills on the columns, if I remember correctly. SON did a big piece with a white fill on the handball court, and there was some other stuff as well. Maybe a DUST piece ?. I had pics of all that but lost them over the decades. Also remember when you were the only name up on the long handball court in Flushing in maybe '79 or '80, green and silver or white piece possibly, facing the houses side. I rode up there on my bicycle and did a little toy piece near yours, in the day :-) Memories. Somebody mentioned BIONIC, didn't he go on to do some bigger work on the 7's, used to mention Tennessee or something along those lines ? Definitely remember the VINNY DOIT pieces on the left side coming into the Main St. 7 tunnel, used to love seeing those.

P-13 and OE-3 were my homeboys. I first met them one night at the D train sheepshead bay lay-ups with HUGHIE-167, REVOLT, and probably MIN. Those guys were great, they were regulars at my old crib on west 82nd street. P-13 was way cool and always came around, he was among the few graf writers that my dad tolerated. I even came home one day and P-13 was sitting in my living room having a beer with my dad!. He was a very good guy, god bless him..RIP. We used to joke about OE-3 at the time who was hefty(later all buff), we called him "Over Eater" instead of Old English. Very cool RCA for putting up the notebook page of them. I have tons of stuff like that which they did at my house.
KR-1: I love the TSS-RTW Thang!..thanx bro..
WH.-1: the MACKIE/HYPE is the bomb!

I agree with Bil on this issue. All graff related photos are free game so just post them up. Theres no such thing as copyrighted photos in this business so get used to it. Personally I could never understand why people choose not to share graff photos, as if holding onto them elevates their status in the game. I know people out there who have some of the baddest photo collections and websites that were non existent in this movement. Go figure.

ARCH TD LOWER EAST SIDE NYC: 16th Mar 2010 - 19:00 GMT
This has nothing to do with copyrights....its absurd that its even brought up. After the book comes out you can scan/trade as many of them you want....just trying to keep shit fresh when the book does drop. But other individuals enjoy undercutting projects and still want to be your man at the same time no matter how many times you tell them not to do something. Im the first one to give a niggah his photo if he ain't got it and not ask for anything in return. Ask Lionel68, RH2, KB etc. I never hold onto shit. In KB's case, hes got a great project to work on, and his so-called man RCA, is undercutting him by posting shit he was told not to...Calling KB up on the phone and pestering him to let him put another photo on this site. Dude, your like a 13 year old girl with a new cell phone! Niggah, don't think I ain't peep your style when KB was telling his war stories to us how you where dumming him down, interupting him with bullshit, boarder line disrespecting him basically, I should of cracked your jaw on the sofa when you pulled that shit. But I let you slide, you didn't even know it. I come from an era in the LES when niggahs got their shit split for less. So don't let my shirt & tie fool you. I been chillin with KB for over 10 years niggah, and I know him well and treat him with respect...YOU, you be clowning him, I peeped your steez...And KB is too nice of a guy to tell you to step off with that BS...im not! You just wiggled in the last year hanging out with KB cause you ain't getting high no more, so you need someone to keep you company cause your on the wagon. Wait until that gets old. Once a dope fiend, always a dope fiend...just give it a lil'time.
And I love how the admin deletes my posts but retains off-tangent comments which have nothing to do with the issue at hand. You recognize real, and scared to death of it....keep deleting my shit holmes! I got foundation bee, some of you cornballs are walking on eggshells and have to resort to this childlike crap.

I'm not sure who EL and BL NCB are. Is this Roto and Dine. This was taken in Fort Hamilton layup in 1988. Their were a lot of Roto & Dine tags in Cascade Green tags near it. With no disrespect to EL3 but why would Quik stick a 3 in it? It seems most old school cats have nothing but praise for original NCB writers.

This little dinosaur of an artifact survived the scrappers. Probably the only remnant of a Roto tag from an interior of a train in existence. I regret not taking more panels from the scrapyard. I have a few nice one's though but I could of taken so many more. :(
Vendalism AOK: 20th Mar 2010 - 15:05 GMT
For the record I did not miss the Siko tag in the last panel. ;)
Vendalism AOK: 20th Mar 2010 - 15:09 GMT
With that being said I should prop AI too. AI was for sure the last king of the A's from 85- end the of graff. He was up on pretty much every car inside and out.
KR.ONE: 20th Mar 2010 - 15:14 GMT
@VEN....you mean the TEK2 TB tag right above the ROTO?
Vendalism AOK: 20th Mar 2010 - 15:34 GMT
@KR. Is that what that says? That part of the panel is definitely a bit mangled. I may have been thinking Siko because he bombed with Kik and that definitely has that Kik styled K in there. I will admit I am not seeing a T or an E but I now see the 2 on the bottom of it. I also forgot to mention CS who also did a lot of bomibng on the BMTS in the mid 80's.

sar i went around the m yards and i didnt see any old stuff/whats cool is a friend of mine just got a job working for transit as a track worker.. he told me some kid was taggin up just recently and got killed at 75 ave IN THE e and f tunnel.his friend came across the body.poor kid.it didnt make the paper. i asked my friend to take some pics for me.the only trouble with that is he dont know who is who.kb told me that there was alot Dean and jester tags between 36st and queens plaza.i remember seeing them as well.i told him so what do u want me to do search thru tunnels like them two guys on the history channel who look for old bicycles.he said if i got caught to make like two guys were tryin to mug me. i said your insane..and we both laughed..
Risco: 21st Mar 2010 - 15:35 GMT
Sar, I forgot about that! Joka was a funny MF. You know where some stuff might have survived? Behind the bus depot, the was a way to get in the yards. You would go through the backyards of the apartment buildings, and hop a wall, and go down a narrow path with a concrete wall on 1 side and the depot on the other. It was once used by bus drivers, but had been unused by anyone but writers since the 70's. We used to enter the bus depot that way too. When they put the fences around the yard in the early 80's, it was closed off. I'll be nobody's been back there for 20 years, including painters. There were pieces on the walls, and tags all over the depots windows back there.
RCA IRT TSS BYB RTW: 21st Mar 2010 - 16:59 GMT
risco you would know, i looked from the train station and around the blocks of the yard..i didn't check around the farmers ovel, wasnt there freight tracks over there?
Risco: 21st Mar 2010 - 17:25 GMT
There sure is, 2 sets of tracks, and 1 freight yard. Walk through the Oval, to the far corner of the football field. There's a bridge, 1 track over the bridge, and 1 track under. The yard is on the lower tracks. We never wasted our paint of the freights back then, but times have changed.

Finally got to see a ROD-1 piece again..some newjacks didnt believe he even existed. I grew up with his cousin AD, and knew him. Once had to scrub subway stations in 74 with him, AD, SIE-1, and a bunch of 3YB. Got busted motion tagging on a 2 train with AD, DAVID-80(THC-OM), and BE-3(3YB), but he narrowly escaped after seeing the DT's coming our way. Again, this book rules.

@Star..last time I saw Deal-Mike707 NSA he was selling insense and muslim oils on Fulton Street. He had left the graff scene and became a muslim.
Now if I can ever figure out how to reduce my personal photos I will post a few that you guys never seen. I tried what this site suggests but no dice. Ill get it sooner or later...
Also, for the guys who walk the tunnels in search of vintage tags, the downtown express tracks midway into the no clearance section of the tube (underneath and about 100ft.from inside the prospect park hatch) has a lower level storage area full of vintage tags. At one time there was no door and could be easily found, we used to keep our paint stash in there. In the early 80's they closed it off with a door making it nearly impossible to detect. Now it looks like a large power box. If you can locate it that room is wall to wall gems. Mostly early Brooklyn writers, but all gems. Happy hunting..

Just some quick info on copyrights. Any artist (or writer) can copyright their work regardless of where or how it is done. If they claim to have done it illegally they open themselves up to arrest (unless the statute of limitations has run out) which hasn't happened yet that I can recall. Their artistic rights cover photographic reproduction until the death of the artist (+75 years). Otherwise a photographer can copyright their photo regardless of what is shown in the photo (it's their hard work and point of view which is being copyrighted). Simply put, if you take a crap on the sidewalk and call it art you have full rights to it but since it's in the public eye someone can come and take a photo of it and put it in a newspaper or magazine (freedom of information and such). If they start to put that photo on a t-shirt or make a movie of your famous piece of crap then the artist deserves a cut. For good or bad, our culture has been publicized and is part of history so let's try to get it right.

Like BIC II, TAGE made a comeback in 84. We hit the GG's. He was like 30 years old at the time and I remember thinking that he was old. Now, 30 is young for bombing. He was like a kid on Christmas morning in that layup. It must've been 5 years since he last hit a train. WAVE 2 is still around. I gotta' track him down. I think that he still lives in Woodside. BIC II used to live in the basement of his grandparent's house. He had the place crushed with inked up pilots. He always put up WAVE II and Jimi Hendrix.

JOEY's outsides were on the news one night because they were complaining about the white cars getting hit. OE was everywhere on the streets before JOZ/TEKAY/EASY hit the scene.

Used to chill with him and KIN-161 when he still lived in my hood(74-75). Bigtime thanx for getting the D-Yard tag of mine too. That was the only time I ever went writing with TRACY-168. After a crazy mad drunken/weeded night of hanging on Morris Ave., TKID and I finally got TRACY to join us for some bombing in the D yard. We got there about 6AM, the sun was coming up and we went in with a boombox jamming, but after 20 minutes it started to rain!..

BILROCK-161, RTW-OTB-BYB: 13th Apr 2010 - 17:58 GMT
SIKO was my homeboy back in 79-81. I used to bomb the M yard with him regularly. Around that time we used to hang with KIK, PERT, OP-2, and P-13 and OE-3 were regulars too. I brought Joey(SIKO) to both the 1 tunnel and the AA yard/tunnel which he loved. He was a good guy and was another regular at my old crib. The last time I saw him was outside the Mudd Club show. For a moment it looked as though I was going to have to throw down with a combined crew of the Ball Busters and TMT wanna be's. I had been involved in the infamous throw-down of TVS vs. TBB just two weeks or so before. I was strapped and faced down these guys again, and writers like IZ, SMILEY-149, and SIKO, among others had my back..that was the last time I saw Joey(SIKO). He had a motorcycle, and his head was stitched across. He was a solid dude whom always had my back..RIP. SIKO

PAY ARTISTS FOR THEIR ART: Yesterday I posted something concerning the issue of the Esses Studio Graffiti Collection, Citynoise.org seems to have felt it was not fit not to post. Over 20 of graffdoms most famous artists painted ths collection between 1980-1982, and none of us have been paid for our work. Nobody ever signed anything giving away their rights to their art. It is unconscionable, and dispicable that Sam Esses estate doesnt come correct about this after all these years. Shame on Citynoise.org for not allowing the post. Several of us are together on this and plan to seek our rightful, and fair compensation for our art work.

Not to mention you haven't touched a can of spray paint since 1983. Dude, your PI skills suck. None of your facts are correct. Why are you so bitter? Is it because Futura, Zeph and Crash made something out of their artistic abilities and you're a snitch for a living? You can't spell, your grammer sucks and your a has been so get over yourself and move on. It's 2010, 30 years after the Studio took place and now you're complaining?

no..I dont feel you at all. Your the one that should get his facts straight. I painted at the Esses Studio, it was I whom Futura asked to bring in writers cause at the time, he knew no one, I knew everyone. Before you pop off on your ignorant rant, you should know(it may help you)that its not just me interested in getting their just due. Its REVOLT, TKID-170, TRACY-168, KEL1st, MARE139, and almost everybody else. And if you knew what you were talkin about, you may know that after those few months in 1980, some of us continued to do paintings for the collection. And , exactly what did you write??, who did you write with??, and were you even alive in 1980?...You need to just go back to your place on the freedom tunnel part of citynoise..this here forum is for real writers..how about you come step to me instead of hiding behind a computer. You stepped in it bro, and from what I can see here is that you are a ignorant coward. ZEPHYR is my boy, DONDI was my boy, etc..etc..etc...go do your homework fool...and crawl back under your freedom alter...which by the way..the last time I saw your boy Freedom, he was running up the street from me and QUIK. And fool..YES..THE SHIT I AM SAYING IS ALL ABOUT THE TRUTH so anytime you think your a man..please step to me...I am easy to find..I never hid from anyone and if you knew any real graf history apart from your Marc Ecko-Freedom garbage, you would know about me..Mr. Taylor James/new jack fool..or whatever your name is..and that is that...Do you feel me???!!

Billy now that's your problem . Had you been straight up and met with me , face to face, like the man you claim to be then we wouldn't be on some open forum like this. This is on you Billy. Man up and show up instead of bad mouthing me . We have been waiting months to meet with you and your "people", but instead you chose to go this route. We tried many times to set up appointments and you have neglected to set a date. You want some sympathy from people that were not even there, much less alive in 1980. You don't even know me, who I am , or what I am about so next time you run your mouth get your facts straight because none of what you have said about the collection or anything else about the situation has been truth... only hearsay. You claim you know it all, do you know that I am trying to set up an Adolescent Center where I live for the arts? Did you know that I work with adolescent drug addicts and gang members? Did you know I was trying to do something , following in the legacy of the Esses Studio to give kids a place to go, like you all had, so that they didn't have to be running around on the streets getting their asses arrested? Or did you know that I have used all the pictures from the Studio to help get the kids to open up when they were scared to death to talk to someone. When I worked in Bushwick that was the only way thekids would even come into my office because they saw pictures of all of your works on my walls and it gave them something to identify with? So yea, you want to rant about what a horrible person I am , have at it, but like I said, you don't know the first thing about me . The collection is right where it's been for three decades. Oh and so nice of you to call when my dad passed away. The only person that gave a shit about the collection or my dad for all these years is Andy. He is the only person that would deserve anything for his "hard work" as you put it. So back the fuck up before you attack someone and get your shit straight!

JADE: 28th Apr 2010 - 12:49 GMT
Thanks RCA, that means a lot. My dad was an incredible man and if it wasn't for him I would be dead. As far back as I can remember( when he was alive) we talked about the 1980 Studio. Those kids were my idols, I was 12 when it went on. I went into this work because in the 80s we didn't have places to go or people to talk to about anything. When I started working with kids I realized that most of the kids with major issues also had incredible artistic talents but they were ever encouraged to use their talents to get them to have self esteem and confidence in their abilities. I always thought that is what the 1980 Studio was for a lot of the artists or at least that's what I always believed. So i've been trying to organize something like that in my town, which refuses to admit that we have major drug problems here as well as gang issues. Adults can be so stupid at times...LOL. But thanks for the acknowledgement. I am just trying to pay it forward and give back what was given to me when I needed it the most. So when you say people like me make a difference it's really not true. I do it because it keeps me humble and sober:) Have a great day.
JADE: 28th Apr 2010 - 13:42 GMT
Oh and RCA...it's the kids that make a difference. I just listen, most of the time it's them helping each other, i'm just there to be the "adult supervision" in the room. :)

Jordana..I was straight up. I emailed you first and was very cordial about things. You are the one that didnt answer the email, instead you had Boyd Level do it. Why dont you just get my email from them and get in touch. I am not alone in this either, I just happen to be the one whom is public about it. Everything is irrelevent except for the fact that nobody has ever been paid/compensated for their work. Nobody ever signed away their rights to their work, and just because your father supplied the paint, materials, and space to work doesnt mean anything. You think its right to get a bunch of poor kids together and hype them out of their artwork because you supplied the materials?. And thats just fine if some of us went on to bigger and better things, that too is irrellevent. You can stand with your percieved graf icons all you want, I have the street cred, they dont. Now...why dont you just do the right thing about the collection. How can you tout the collection as your own...?, well it seems then that you inherited the problem. If your into doing the right thing then lets just all get together and figure out a just/honest end to this thing. Your personal attacks mean nothing to me, and I dont have a sponser..dont need one, and I am extremely sober.

Umm, yea Billy, i've seen all the e-mails , we have been waiting for you to get back to us for a date. Instead you decided to go into an open forum and air your anger. If you've felt this way for 30 years , why is it that you're coming forward now? And please don't put me into any category with Mark Ecko. I've got nothing to do with him or what he has done to the Graffiti community.
RCA IRT TSS BYB RTW: 28th Apr 2010 - 20:16 GMT
Jade thank you for the nice comments. I agree with u it is about giving back.Iam in recovery and dont care who knows it.Bilrock is not a bad person and we been friends for years.I dont really know whats going on with the whole story but if something of his was taken without it being given it should be returned reguardless of how long its been.I think it would be a good idea to sit down and work something with each other like you said,,and if you ever have the time and resources to have a art day for the kids us old timers let me speak for myself would donate some time to get involved with helping some confused kids.
JADE: 28th Apr 2010 - 20:23 GMT
RCA thanks. I will definitely let you know. I wish I was in the city bc the art place for the kids would be a lot easier to set up. Small towns have small views of the world, you know what I mean?

Billy, Franklin is not my lawyer. She has been helping me with the graffiti as an Art Advisor. From January until March the Bronx Museum had an exhibit with all the archival pictures from the Studio , as well as a tribute to Dondi. Last summer we were contacted by a very prestigious Museum in Paris but the deadline came to soon and we could not get the work there in time for the show. I have been working with the collection since 2000, trying to see how it can be placed somewhere so that the world can appreciate what all of you did for graffiti. And trust me the only thing I do like a dude is ride a Harley...See you soon. Jordana

SON and Pro were the kings of the 7's.FUZZONE was the man after them.My favorite piece on the 7's was the welcome to hell whole car by Caine 1. I was a big Alice Cooper fan.Kapitan my family was originally from corona right by the lemon ice king on corona ave that's been there for over 100 years they show it in the beginning of the show king of queens.I did some work in that area looking around for some old stuff,nothing.That ANDY 72 tag i posted was a rare find.nobody probably heard of him but he had some insides on the old flats and the 7's on the insides.I started writing in the late 70's the year of the big blackout.Im always looking for some good old pics that are not out there .sometimes you got to settle for the old timers to come back and do a wall or canvas,
RCA IRT TSS BYB RTW: 3rd Jun 2010 - 15:50 GMT
KR i knew u would know who ANDY 72 WAS.There is a picture on line some where of a guy cleaning graf tags cause that was the punishment back in the day if you got caught and i could swear it was andy 72.It's funny because he went on to be a token booth clerk for the t.a.He might even be retired by now.

Vintage tags from the good ol' days...the 7's just before going into Main st...FLAME, BILROCK, SONONE tags...a little later, GHOST AND NEO...RR going into the tunnel to Manhattan...KB all over...I think that FLAME still has a tag in that tunnel...FUZZONE had Roosevelt Ave killed from the White Castle on 69 st. to the 7 yard. I remember going to a DEAD concert at the Garden in 1980 and SON had just tagged a vintage SONONE in the box with a pilot on one of the pillars outside the Garden. He also bombed the outside of Shea before the Who concert in 1982. The Long Island Railroad by Shea was totally destroyed for years. FLAME had one of his classic tags down there.

ANDY72 INFO: 5th Jun 2010 - 16:07 GMT
I have a "hunch" Andy72 is related to Robert78 TSW ATP IRT. Andy72 was an original from the early 70's. Ford Elite was up in same time maybe 74 - 75. Ford Elite also wrote or wrote with Gran Torino both named after the identical cars back then. It's only 35 plus years ago. KLEPTO was another from that era and area. Where's that Andy72 tag from? That's old original before his small a andy72 tag.

FUZZONE and SKY2 tags with the Jiff cap, LSD3's and KB tags. Man, the good old days! Why didn't I carry a camera? SKY 2 had beef with this dude who wrote FBI from Woodside...FBI wrote with BIC 2 and WAVE 2...SKY 2 came down to Bryant H.S. with a machete looking for FBI.....classic mid 70's shit...

That dude SHEER had just about every roof top on the 7 line. I had the pleasure of meeting Ferrari and Curly while me and my friend MS2 (RIP) hit the 7's in 84. They had a temporary lay up at 52st. staked out. Curly smacked the shit out of my friend because his last name had SHEER in it. CURLY was a prick. ANGEL DUSTER, GHOST and a bunch of others (I was ripped) had tags in a notebook that Ferrari kept. My friend ended up becoming a Corrections Officer and then a cop before passing away from Lou Gehrig's disease a few years ago. He loved talking graff. He used to tell me about the tags in Rikers. FLAME had his typical tag with "Going upstate" after it. Classic. Speaking of Rikers, I have an old friend who is a chronic guest there. I met him a few weeks ago and he was telling me about this guy named John Wayne (Not sure of the spelling) who does pieces on the island. Apparently, Corrections gives him unlimited paint to do the bridge and other places there.

Mike 79: 8th Jun 2010 - 18:18 GMT
Me and JIMMY 131 killed the outside of Shea a few nights before the Who shows. We even climbed the wall and caught tags on the ramps. It was amazing how there was no night security there. The tags were there long after the shows and a few stayed for years.
GIL: 9th Jun 2010 - 02:26 GMT
Wow I remember those tags MIKE. You and JIMMY went on a tagging rampage! A friend of mine RO claimed he know you both,
Back then you knew what parts of Queens belong to whom. Like on the streets of Astoria... It was TSS ( KB, RCA, CONO , KN, etc), Then PK-NOTE. I didn't think KR and FOME were from Astoria and always thought they came Brooklyn and hung with only with NEWAVE. I use to see KR in a few black books and the guys was dope, FOME as well. It blow my mind once I met the dude and found out he was normal and not all gassed up.
Woodside was MIKE 79, JIMMY 131 BIC2, were all over the streets. My favorite taggers were FUZZ and FLAME, MIKE79 & JIMMY131, SCOP, SON.ONE, KB, SES, DURO, GHOST, ROGER, JESTER, BD 1, BLADE & COMET
little feather down by the Collage was .. TKC ( EKO, SIR, EB, EA, VISA, SU2, HOOK and guys like that.
Jackson hights it was FUZZONE, FLAME, DR.PEPPER, BRIM, AD, DJ FUZZ, SKY 2, BD, FUN 1, EDO, RICO-PIC, 2BAD,
Jamaica avenue on the streets ...CER, SCOP, and then came others like CER, KAP, PW etc. TPA 2nd generation.
I met AD once through Rec at usa and the dude seemed pretty kool, a latin kid with a push back and sporting a tail. He died a year later.
Ghost, Fuzzone, Flame, Iz the wiz, KID 56, PG3 & Peak,Quik, Demo-tpa were my favorite writers to watch. Those sinky smely trains full with all these wild cats sizing you up, so you always knew you had to have your game face. It was wild being in that last car of the Subway, there were cats pulling out Joints and smoking up, beers, markers or paint or a gun. Back then people didn't play which is something my kids will never understand. But in a way Im glad them days gone, and I lived longer enough to start a famaily, which is pure fucken luck, because I seemed distin for prison. God bless all

@GIL, hell yeah Zone was fresh, somewhere in the crates I've still got a pic of the nice red, blues, & white cloud ZONEY handball court in Flushing, which was probably the same day in '82 that I snapped the pic through the fence of the nice PEAK piece in the electrical yard (that pic can be seen on the NEO interview page at subway outlaws). There used to be a truck layup on a side street near Pathmark, either mail, con-ed or something along those lines, and everybody would hit up there. Lots of Ghost & SO from what I recall. Still seeing SO tags pop up around Flushing now and then. I've got one surviving pic of a 7 rolling by Shea around '81ish with the names Vice, Faze, Maz & Skoe (or maybe Skop) across two cars.

CRIME 79's partner BABY 168 has some new tags and throwups over in Howard Beach. I saw a few BY 168 trucks too recently. Speaking of Rockaway, remember that silver or white (Can't remember) SACH RTW tag on that green road sign on Cross Bay as you got closer to Rockaway. That tag was there for years! Nice fat cap tag.

Luckily the hair is still there, although I'm pushing 50 and a grandfather. Don was and is my boy always.. he was one of my mentors and so was Dean I was lucky to have such great company..I was taught to piece by Cliff 159! I hunged out at NOGA for a few months before it closed. I did not do as much as I could have since I quit so young, but I met and hunged out with some cool writers.I think Cliff put me in 3yb cause I was a little kid (14) just wanting to learn the craft..he might have felt sorry for me or saw potential...at least I hope he did..LOL. Once again gents thank you all of you for the memories! KR I'll be contacting you.

That shit had us pumped up to go bombing almost like when u we use to play hookie from school and go to 42st and time square and go to see a karate flick and come out and start play fighting with each other which sometimes got serious if someone got smacked to hard.Then we would sneak in the peep shows lol,those were the days.......

I think that shot one him a prize at Art n Design check this with him. Mike I knew Low he is one of the original Byb members, we go way back to Manhattan IS 44 and the schoolyards on 84st Paw was an early member also I don't remember him though. I think low was hitting the layup on 67th ave. in Rego park. The photos are courtesy of Don 1.
Gear1 BYB: 27th Aug 2010 - 22:12 GMT
Whats up RCA, yeah I forgot about the 7s Dean and I bombed it a little..then he just crushed it! That was Dean when you went writing with him it would be a long night! When we split as partners I think he had hit 25,000 pieces I think Cliff had like 5000 or 6000 pieces Dean and I would mark our piece # at times. I hit a measly 1200.
Your right those were perhaps the most fun ever the rush was incredible..when the ridgies came into play on the RR line I was begining to lose my zest for writing. Dean was running with MC (Sly108) when I quit, he was a cool guy but his crew TC was terrorizing other writers. I never had beef with them and I put up TC as well, I think Sly and Jester were on equal terms as far as leadership. I could be wrong. TCK was a bunch of cats that hung together in Astoria.I put it up for my boys.. but other writers put it up as well, more of a street crew though. Anyone know anything about KB? he was a cool cat, Jace 2 was my boy also I used to take him to the layups, before TSS. Dean and I introduced Smoke to the layup as well. I was the original "vandal" from the Ditmars area and Mr Don 1 from LIC..LOL Savage was out there also, brewing waiting to explode with TSS!

SAR, Thanks for your comment on the drawing, What can I say about Mr.Don1 that you guys don't already know except that he was a cool ass MF person and an awesome artist in every sense of the word but you guys knew that.
I was a predominantly a BMT writer so in my opinion there was never any conflict. I think he may have stopped writing when I was bombing with DEAN in 76 and I also wrote for Bad Yard Boys, so writers knew it wasn't the same writer, although Gear from SSB was mistakenly associated with some of my work on the BMTs, he started writing around the same time I started in 74. By the way thanks for the awesome photos this is an awesome forum since to a certain extent we seem to be members of the same "old time" crews and to those who kept BYB going thanks for keeping it alive.
ICYHOT NSA GSA : 4th Sep 2010 - 20:38 GMT
I would like to chime in here about GEAR's awesome tag style. During the DEAN partnership the "G" with the tornado curl was crazy nice...I used to see older GEAR tags running which used a lower case "g" and a stretched out style the "a" was very unique. Props to Gear...

Hey Mike79, the documentary you saw was probably Dark Days of the Freedom Tunnel.
I asked The Shadow, since only The Shadow knows, and he said there are some old tags inside Hell Gate bridge but the Astoria side is probably buffed. Time to take a trip inside I think.
Mike 79: 9th Sep 2010 - 17:40 GMT
What's up SMITH? The flic is called "Tunnel Dwellers of N.Y. and it was shot by some French dude in 2008. I ran across it by accident on cable. I taped it because they ran it a few times on the Sundance channel. It's all about the homeless people from different parts of the city. Freedom is in it. When the photographer comes down some steps in the Freedom tunnel, there's a PINKSMITH tag at the foot of the steps. We should all get together down at 5 pts. in the next few weeks. WHISPER was telling me about a RIS book coming out. I haven't seen Cousin Frank in 20 years.

If u look closely at the second pic from the top of this blog, posted by REVOLT, there is a Joust TSS tag. I remember that night at Sheepshead Bay. I had just finished doing a few quick pieces solo. and was on my way out , when I looked back I saw at the other end of the lay-up, a group of guys come in. At this time, summer of 83, Min had taken to crossing me out. My heart was pounding, but I knew I wanted to confront the situation, if it was RTW I wanted to show them I had balls, because really I was a fan of RTW. As I approached they saw me walking up the line, they did not run, and when I was close enough I announced it was cool, it was me Joust. KB and KN warmly greeted me. I had met them there earlier in the summer with SAM. They introduced me to IZ THE WIZ(!!!), who was also really cool with me. When I told them I had already completed my mission and was tapped out, they invited me to hang with them. They had just completed some throws, and passed me the can to catch a tag. As I was tagging KB said "put up TSS", and that moment is caught in this photo. After that they threw me a couple of cans so I could hang and bomb with them. When finished we went out together through a hole in a fence, it was early in the morn but still dark. I said I had a nickel, so we hung. I started to clean it when IZ said fuck it " lets rough it" throw it all in. We had our ritual and then parted ways. Definitely one of my fondest graf memories.

No doubt Mike, they rocked that park, on one side was the Son piece, along with a Dust piece from what I recall, and there were pieces on the flip side of the wall as well but can't recall what it was. Had pics of all that but sadly lost over the decades of transitions. Pro had some nice fills on many of those columns as well, with his classic faces in the O's, always loved those ! Conan, that name rings a bell for sure, one of those guys, either Conan or Bionic, used to hit up something about being from Tennessee or someplace down south, can't remember which now. Speaking of the bridge between Shea & Main St., in early '83 I did a piece on the little building in between the tracks at the end of the Willets Pt. station platform (there's like 4 buildings in a row there now), and decided to exit the station and walk that bridge back to Flushing afterwards. Caught many tags along the way. While visiting Queens in 2002 i walked it again for the first time since that era, and unbelievably still had several tags visible on the metal poles, 19 years later ! The concrete tags were all absorbed but the metal held them nicely, incredible longevity. What year did you and Jimmy get busy there ?

Why haven't I saw any T59 or Fabulous Troy pieces or tags. Those boys rocked it for a while?
fr8bench: 5th Oct 2010 - 17:29 GMT
Mike, I'm sure I saw all those great tags of yours back then. Summer of '83, my friend and I walked that bridge again and strolled down behind the 7 yard to piece that old LIRR car that was abandoned back there facing the line. Good times. Do you remember the VINNY piece on the left side when coming into the Main St. tunnel, i think there was also a Do-It piece next to it. Always loved Vinny's work. OE3 and P13 on all the pillars inside the tunnel, with Ghost, Lost & Neo doing the same thing later. Always loved catching tags at the very end wall of that station, it was usually a pretty quiet spot once the engineer left to switch ends, good for some quick outsides tags every now and then too!
Mike 79 : 5th Oct 2010 - 18:15 GMT
Those walls heading into Main St. were filled with classic tags. You're right....it was VINNY CA Do-it...SONONE and I believe PRO...FLAME (PIC) BILROCK, GHOST and NEO had the tunnel...a friend of mine who didn't even right told me that he went to the 7's one night with some local writers back in the mid to late 70's...he said that the abandoned LIRR car or cars were the hangout before they went bombin'...he remembered meeting CHINO and ROGER and everyone was smoking weed and drinking...Then LIRR station was also crushed by the 7's...FLAME PIC had a nice tage down there with F&^K the cops next to it...
Mike 79 : 5th Oct 2010 - 19:17 GMT

I remember noticing Vinny even before I got into the writing culture. We used to drive from Queens to the Bronx to visit family often in the mid '70's, and I would always see his very readable yet stylish name on the elevateds, stations, etc, along the way. After becoming connected to the culture in '78, I finally found out what was up and that IZ and Vinny were the two kings.

I don't know if he recognized me from an earlier bust with 2Bad but I didn't want to jinx them so we cancelled it. It would have been sweet bombing with them.

@1 Train---Lol, a while back one of my co-workers called another guy as a "work bum" I turned around and asked him where did you hear that from. Tells me back in the day track workers would chase writers from the yards or quarters and the writers would yell out " work bums".
Mike 79 : 15th Oct 2010 - 13:52 GMT
I was on an R train a few months ago and I saw a "Pray" scratched in between cars on one of the new trains. I wouldn't be surprised if some transit worker is keeping the name alive. It looked exactly like the original. That tag was scratched everywhere. Every telephone booth in every boro. I saw that ZEPHYR wrote about PRAY on his site. He said that she was a homeless lady and that he spotted her scratching a tag somewhere in Manhattan a while back. JESUS SAVES definately gets around....not as much as JA but he hits alot of trucks and offbeat places. BOND, keep taking those flics....we appreciate it..I remember you and FUZZONE having tags on the old White Castle on 69 st. and Roosevelt by that roller rink.

My uncle was a transit guy at the Ghost Yard and he never chased kids out. Always said that the graf kept the cleaning guys employed!

Risco: 17th Oct 2010 - 21:49 GMT
We used to hit the buses down by Myrtle and Wycoff. That was the last stop for a couple of routes, and the drivers would take a break and leave the bus unattended for 10 minutes or so. Mop work at a donut shop right there at the time. Me and Joka hit the Bus Depot by the M yard a few times, but it was never very cool there. We would get in from these broken windows in the back, and lower ourselves onto some 55 gallon drums that were stored back there. I think someone spotted us each time we were in there. There was a spot by the front of the Depot where they would lay buses up for about a half and hour. We would hang out back there and hit them inside and out.

Those KR pieces are off the fucken hook.DAM!! I use to see his stuff in blackbooks when I first got intrested in Graffiti, I use to see some dope pieces in black books of FOME and KR pieces as well as ERNI and a few of those art and design unknown cats, it it use to blow my mind looking at this stuff. Before I met KR ..I thought he'd be one of these sUPPED up jerkie writers you seem to always run accorss and its refreshing to find out he's a down to earth dude. Good to know there are a few normal people in the writing world, jeez.

disco3yb sk top: 22nd Oct 2010 - 14:44 GMT
The first true kings from queens Dizzy 1 South Jamaica,Move 1 (Soma) Hollis/Queens Village.
Super strut,stay high 149 first writers to hit the tunnels continental to 169 st and leave tags.You what to see some tags 179 st pull in and out should be some.I know has Smith has some he gave Lil Soul some old stuff of mine.
This train was hit as a gg/ee for Me.Look at the front Dizzy and Iz.Dizzy ,Spin BKLYN,Mico cool coke,AJ,lee 163 owned the fronts.Second generation came in Vinny,Ca,Iz took over heavy.But a lot of the tags were along a dizzy tag.No buffing then tags lived until late 78 or so and longer.Never had to back round any one on the letter lines.Irt yes no room.
Most of our second generation writers out of my area do not have many flix of there stuff.Star Ftw I was told has some flix and tracy might have some.Be nice to get a couple posted here.Star gave me love before with the yellow piece posted on this site.
Back in the day Ex-one who took over after duke9 had some flix.Be nice to get those.
Just had those thoughts.

Where were u painting BMT cars? Did u hit IRT's as well? Who were some of the most famous guys that u met back then, did u know Ben and All 1? I remember u had lots of pieces as well as nice uni and mini tags. I wrote Joust 1, but in 75, I was just a lil toy tagging local stations with my pal Storm 7, more of a graffiti reader than writer at that point.

The other half of the CEY SCOP... Cey (City, TPA, DTB). This was part of the "When One Strives..." joint on the back of Andrew Jackson HS. He did it when he graduated back in 82. There was a third writer, who they used to roll with- Crazy Dave or CD 189, pres of DTB. When CD retired they did a piece around my way. "Cey Scop" in grey and black on one side of a handball court. "CD" and "cd" in black and white on the other, with a character by Cey I believe.

I don't know if it had a lot respect, but to me the Es and Fs along with the GGs and Ns were the best to watch. Because there no toys-lol. Not a lot of pieces but tons and tons of clean, crisp throws.

I remember seeing a writer name Seko on the streets..wow remember old Stash tag and Flame those or real old writers, as well as Duce . wow.. I have those Pic's. I loved to see a old SG3 tag. Ezo, Spicer, Visa, OE, Break were not from Flushing .. OE3 from Brooklyn, Visa was from the boarder line Brooklyn/ Queens, Break was from Corona as well as Rico.Pic, EZO also From Corona Jacksonhights. Sloan / SL (Dope Throwie Style) was from 82nd street as well as others like BOBBY1-DEO & CORE.
PRO 1, EAST 1, Ghost, REC127 Lost, Neo were from flushing Queens.E's and F's very over looked!!Dam that line should get more props. Se-Queens you are so on point. Props to you.

Lady Heart and Scop... No one talks about Heart but she was serious business! Banging tag, crazy style... never saw her put up any bs on the trains or on the walls. I still remember the 2Nice, Drip, Sofine and Heart tag on Mac's store.

Kap (Tpa, Af) and Rec 127 Tpa (Rip). TZ (rip) Tmr. DOZO stand up!!! Two more-Saint Tmr and Mac/Mirage Cwk. Saint was one of the most up writers I've ever seen. From the mid 80's to the 90s son was everywhere! His boy Hyde came to us, and was like my boy is wack can ya'll give him some letters. I did a straight letter joint for him and my man Zeke Fc did some. A couple of years later? What? Dude absolutely killed in the spirit of In, Iz, Dy 167 and Min. He went hard on that street $hit early. I remember Cect and Fib, Per, Fayde and Med, Cope and Quik Kd, Dc3, Trap, Edge, Enuf, Joz, Josh, Rob, Tekay, BLone, Chino, Sp, Reas, Seen, PJ, and Zoom, Jon one, Dash, Demer, Ghost, Sent... Not as nice as a lot of these, but in terms of bombing- Saint gets Nuff Respect!

How can I forget Veefer? I remember when I met Cer Tpa (Rip) and I found out Veefer was not from around the way-lol. I was like "Damn" he's up in our neighborhood like he owns it...lol. But Saint was a beast. I even saw a Saint throw-up in Western PA. It's really a shame he doesn't get more love. Shout out to Binky and Pest TMR.
Mike 79 : 9th Nov 2010 - 14:46 GMT
SEQueens: I used to work all over Jamaica in the mid to late 80's. There was another dude who wrote KRAK. He was all over the streets. VEEFER has new tags down by the South Street Seaport. I was over by Sutphin Blvd. and 117 ave. a few months ago and JA and VEEFER had some nice fat cap tags over there. SAINT definately killed along with the rest of TMR. Someone told me that SAINT had a tag on that apple at Shea. Whenever anyone hit a homerun, the apple would come up. When it came up, the announcers said something like "These vandals are everywhere now". GHOST got SAINT up in his new book. He deserved it. I think that it was 46 st. on the 7 line. SAINT had pilot tags on every column going down the Flushing side. It had to take him hours.
Mike 79 : 9th Nov 2010 - 14:51 GMT
SMITH SANE: I caught Roger Waters doing the Wall at the Garden on Saturday. KR, yoou were right....great show...we stopped for a few beers at a bar called "Tracks" down stairs by the LIRR. They had some clean train pictures on the wall. I saw a Q train rolling into the station and sure enough, there were SMITH SANE tags on the tracks. I tried to take a picture of it but it was too dark.

Can't forget SmithSane!But yeah Saint was an absolute BEAST! A lot of people throw around the term "Legend" but he was one. I remember that Fuzz joint with the "Howard the Duck" on the VanWyck/Grand Central. That was amazing to me because it was so freakin' huge. Then Wish Tpa went over it. I went to get a photo and it was painted over. Blooood Clot!!! Krak 5 Tpa! He along with Cee, Zoid, Slayer, and Hype and the rest of GK were going to be "next". Hype became HYPE WILLIAMS (Krak was supposed to be the inspiration for Belly). Crack and Rap changed the focus of a lot of cats. It was about $$$$... when you here talk of the SouthSide you hear talk of the TEAM

I picked up that RIS book from Amazon. It's a good book. They did alot of damage in the late 80's/early 90's. I can see why the Vandal Squad was after them.

SEQueens: 18th Nov 2010 - 04:07 GMT
Question before the panel.Why does no one talk about Sheer on the 7 line? His name was every where if I recall. Even non-writing cats would talk about him-lol. Also, on the E and Fs I remember the RtWow compilation of Quik,Sach,Min,Pade,Boe,Trike,Rich,Iz,Haze,Tekay and Sago. Or QK,SH,NE,PD,JL/Boe,TO,RH,IZ,SE,TK and SA. There was another throw- lowercase b, r and and o with a swirl. Was this Brother 125? I do not think it was Boozer.
fr8bench: 18th Nov 2010 - 14:34 GMT
SEQ, I mentioned Sheer a few months ago, The Shocking Sheer ! Actually caught an old tag of his running on a fr8 back in the 90's. What years was he active on the 7's, for some reason I'm thinking '85ish but it's all kind of a blurr, anybody have pics of his work ? Nice G-man tag above !

Mike 79 : 18th Nov 2010 - 20:50 GMT
SHEER had just about every roof top on the 7 line back then. It was 1984. He had some insides too. The 7 killers that year were NEO, REC127, GHOST, NYE....ANGEL DUSTER, SOE XMEN, SONONE made a comeback....NET and BONES banged the insides in one car that I saw....IZ killed a few insides that I saw with a mini....who remembers Ferns on 74 st.? They sold minis back then...Pecks was another great store for Designer markers...I was in there with BUSTONE and SUDZ one time...my friend worked there...we got a few hundred dollars worth of designers and paint and we paid like $20 at the register...we just waited for the owner to walk away...RTW had the E's and F's killed in 84....I remember them hitting on New Year's Day night...SACH, MIN and QUIK went off! They must have killed everything in the layup that night...

JOEY TPA, TC...I remember watching the news one night and they were showing the white 7's (The white elephants as CAINE called them)..and you had throwups on them...the report was all about how they couldn't keep the cars clean...I used to have a Time magazine article about crime rising in the city and they showed a FUZZONE/K56 shot...I lost it along the way...it must've been in 80 or 81....

Slogun/Bklyn: 5th Jan 2011 - 12:59 GMT
Hey EGG-CREAM KID. I don't remember those names specifically, as I was a little kid back then just starting to notice the writing game. But I do remember a bunch of those classic Brooklyn signatures that stood out for me over all others. I do agree with those that say Queens is not given proper credit for those early days. But I also believe that Brooklyn is left out just as much, if not more. But I think it's because of the lack of photos coming through nowadays. All the BGA guys, Undertaker Ash, Apps Superhog, Flowers Dice, etc. It's a shame.

Damn, would have loved to see those pics SP, The Shocking Sheer, I definitely remember him being up on the 7's back then. Actually caught an old tag of his still running on a fr8 back in the mid 90's. I've tried to post flix on here as well and they get refused saying something along the lines of it being considered spam or something like that. Nice SON find Mike !! Would LOVE to see him & Pro make a comeback on the fr8's someday !

I remember once back around '81, a bit prior to the double fences and dogs, walking up to the 7 yard fence with just a marker in hand, on the most beaten down path leading to the most obvious sizable hole, and just as I got near the fence an alarm of some type sounded off one time loudly inside the yard. I booked back to the LIRR platform of course and got the hell out of there. Was never sure if it was just a coincidence or they actually had something set up on that path. Anybody else ever have that experience there ?

Then Son & Pro came through around 1980 and rocked some killer pieces on both sides of the handball court, and nice fills on many of the pillars down toward the water.

Many of the pics i recognize others are before my time and Ive probably passed them by as a kid.... To those that have paseed on. I pay my respects. To those that continue to share their experiences,photos and stories, we lived in an era where music and art were at its finest. Like everything else, time will dilute its meaning and those of us fortunate enought to live during these times are truly lucky....Keep the photos coming and to those coming on here to start trouble or even worse, disrespect the legends who take the time from their daily lives and families to share their memories and photos. Grow up if you havent already.....It's long overdue..

If you want to pick up a great book about the 70's trains, look up Graffiti Kings by Jack Stewart on Amazon. Man, I look at those mid 70's tags and wonder how the new generation can't tag.

Speaking of Astoria, back in mid-late '82 I was riding the RR's around there, just benching and catching some insides, when I walked into a car and there were 3 dudes a little older than me in there, I was 14 and they were around 17ish probably. They were looking at tags and talking graff, so I pulled out my pilot to signal my similar interest. We rapped a little and when I asked what they wrote they were joking around and one guy said he wrote "Knife" and the other guys said some other funny stuff, then we all caught tags with my marker. Now I cannot recall what they wrote. So fess up, which ones of you was that ??

Hah, reminds me of when about 8-10 years ago, I was visiting Queens one time & riding the 7's. There were a couple young dudes in the same car also looking out the windows, talking graff amongst each other, when as we were going over Sunnyside yd I noticed a DARKS wholecar on a fr8 down below in there. So I pulled my camera out of the bag, snapped a pic of it, and those dudes looked at me nervously, lol. I looked at them and reassuringly said that I was just an old fan of graff. It was so nice to see that old, familiar spirit of excitement for writing, alive and well on the line within the younger generations. Especially knowing what extents those in power have gone to in attempts to kill it off .
Mike 79 : 9th Jun 2011 - 13:22 GMT
RCA...see you on Saturday...fr8...DARKS has alot of rooftops along the 7's and the BQE...he's good...remember SHEER on the 7's arounf 84...he had just about every roof on the line...Ferrari and Curly wanted him big time...they were going to charge him for breaking and entering buildings...BRUZ and KEZ5 had alot too in the early 90's...

For sure Mike, I definitely remember when The Shocking Sheer started showing up on the line ! About 14 or 15 years ago I was benching fr8's and snapping pics, and when I finally got the roll developed I was pleasantly surprised to see an old original Sheer tag visible above some pieces on one of the cars. He must have crept thru Sunnyside yd at some point back in the day ! Do you remember how Sunnyside was always packed with fr8's back then, but there was one particular worker train or something in there that was always lit up with burners and sometimes visible in the middle of the yard from the 7's, I wonder who that was ?

I guess that doesn't apply to the back parking lot. In my opinion, 1/2 of the place isn't even graff anymore. Two walls on that side have paintings with no letters. Maybe it's me?????
Mike 79 : 13th Jun 2011 - 13:13 GMT
We have a bunch of bands playing at the Jackson Club on Saturday. It's $10 to get in and it includes a BBQ. There will be a cash bar. The party starts at 4:00 and runs till about 1:00. The address is 56-01 Northern Blvd. in Woodside. 11377 if you're using a GPS.

Fritos the legend lives on.: 14th Jul 2011 - 11:12 GMT
All you toys need to learn your history. I have been writing since 1970 and know every thing written in here is a bunch of crap. Sar for the record your not old school!
Fritos : 14th Jul 2011 - 13:59 GMT
I'm sorry. I was drunk when I wrote that above. Beer muscles. If it wasn't for Fuzz and Mark 198, no one would know who I am.
English Major 168: 14th Jul 2011 - 15:29 GMT
Fritos, you should have placed a "Comma" after "Record". Grammar is very important in the Graffiti community. We do accept your apology. I hate to tell you this but if Sar started writing in 77/78, that is "Old School". It's 11:30 now. Your Social Security check should be arriving in the mail soon. Check your front foor.
Slogun/Bklyn: 15th Jul 2011 - 16:23 GMT
FYI- So it doesn't slip under the radar: Next Thursday happens to be the 40th anniversary of the ever famous Taki 183 article in the NY Times.
RCA IRT: 15th Jul 2011 - 16:42 GMT
Good to see that people actually are commenting whatever it might be. There is going to be a new website coming soon OQBIRT.com (Old Queens Boys Invading Rapid Transit). We are going to take graffiti sites to a whole new level. Hopefully some people will get involved and become part of it. Stay tuned for more information.

The battle is still on, Art =vs=Crap! As a real member of the old school I feel compelled
" FRITOS. 4 line legend "
OLD SCHOOL PRO : 28th Jul 2011 - 00:08 GMT
FRITOS WRITING ON YOUR SNEAKERS WHILE SITTING ON THE TRAIN DOESNOT COUNT AS BEING A GRAFFITI ARTIST! BUT IF YOU HAVE A COUPLE MORE BEERS YOU WILL BE TELLING US YOU INVENTED THE SPRAY CAN AND THAT YOU ARE A ALL CITY KING .HAVE A COUPLE MORE BEERS AND TAKE YOUR SNEAKERS OUT AND THEN YOU WILL BE A TRUE LEGEND! USE A NICE BLUE ON THEM THIS TIME !
OLD SCHOOL PRO : 28th Jul 2011 - 00:22 GMT
FRUSTRATED RIDER INSISTS TAGGING ON SNEAKERS MEANS FRITOS.
OLD SCHOOL PRO: 28th Jul 2011 - 00:31 GMT
FRITOS FORGET THE BLUE .USE A NICE BLACK ON YOUR BACK YARD BOUNCERS. THEY WONT LOOK THAT DIRTY! COUPLE MORE BEERS AND YOU BACK YARD BOUNCERS WILL TURN INTO CONVERSE!!

Don wrote before NOC 167 but you never left the Boogie Down to know that. You talk shit about "Darkies" and "Bring back slavery" yet you praise NOC for starting MAFIA. Make up your mind! Your boy FUZZ hung out with more "Darkies" than Al Sharpton. I just hope that it's someone hiding behind your name because whoever you are, if you don't like the site, move on to something else.
Fritos Discovered Our Secret: 28th Jul 2011 - 16:27 GMT
It's out now!!! Thanks to Frito the Bronx legend of the 4 line. Everyone knows now that there was never graffiti in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens. All of the trainshots from everywhere excluding the Bronx were super imposed. The trains were always clean except for the Bronx. All crews were started there. All writers, all trains...everything...this is hard to take...we've been lying to each all these years...acting like we wrote...collecting fake pictures...ask Henry...only the Bronx existed...thanks Fritos...you are so knowledgable...keep teaching us...from now on, we will address you as Professor Fritos! Congrads...

aaaah, you guys know that's Trash168 the original hater too poor to use his real name. Don't hate on Fritos 'cause of this yo-yo.
For something a lot more interesting to watch please see this:
SprayMasters is Manny Kirschheimer's sequel to Stations of the Elevated. Some more old school footage (including a Pro and Son on the 6 I believe), newer old schooler footage at 5Pointz and a lot of opinions from 4 older writers. It takes a while to load so be patient since it's 1:30 hr long. Yes you can enlarge the video to fill the screen so enjoy!

I came across this forum while searching for something else and it reminded me of part of my childhood playing graffiti in the early to mid 70's I ran with Chito-A train tagging king for a while, Rhino-F train tagger, True2, Also went to the Grant and New Lot Ave yard and ran into Vinny, Tee, Stim RIP, ink76. It was some crazy fun. I remember seeing continuous pieces by Naco, Jester and Dondi on the J line. One year Vinny just took over. Tee had taken over the A train also. I remember getting chased in the New Lots Ave yard with tee stim and others and jumping out of the yard at its highest point. Yea that hurt but we all got away and believe it or not no one broke any bones. Any one out their remember that. I remember running into Vinny, shorty, duster, tee, stim, uncle john,ink76, mort and others in layups and the yard. I have lost touch with mostly everyone but hope life has treated everyone well. Just passing through...Sniper-131

I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving as well,I cannot and will not let anyone rent space in my head with their negative bullshit....Hey Bronx asshole I don't care if you started writing from the beginning of time,By the way what do you write wanna beeee JERK OFF,,,,This was a good site until some haters want to talk their shit, Alot of time and effort was put into it this site!Anyone can say anything they want but for me action speaks louder than words,,,,Phony 13 what's wrong with you?If you where the real P13 prove it,Come and meet me I remember what you look like,Unless you grow some balls and meet up with us all this stuff your writing don't mean anything,,,In fact if you don't have anything good to say or pics to post, do us all a favor and go on facebook and play a game or something so you really can be in a fantasy land....
Risco: 26th Dec 2012 - 13:01 GMT
I went back to the old neighborhood this week. It was a shock to see how little graffiti there was, it seems like it gets painted over as soon as it done. I did see a wall that never got painted though. This pic was taken on 62nd street, when you walk out of the Fresh Pond Road station. These guys are a little after my time,I saw a couple of them up years ago, maybe some of you know them.

I would strongly suggest that you brush up on your grammar skills. You will never meet a nice girl if you compose the letters that you wrote above. The grammar school and high school years were critical in developing who you are today. It's never too late to take some evening courses. I understand that you are trying to express yourself, however, this is the the forum for you to practice. Maybe the shelter where you reside can offer more assistance. Thank you.

Wow, a wanna-be P13. As OE3 has said, he tried to contact P13 last year and P13 wanted NOTHING to do with graffiti writers. If P13 wouldn't talk to OE3 then why is this phony guy on here? Stealing and posting photos and pretending to be someone else? Pretty lame
some photos found online

Once upon a time.. any pics of sanesmith campaign, every station on the 7 line was lit up with sanesmith everything was hit, walls,trusses, tracks, over between 46 st to 33 st especially hard hit,the conrete railway walls, everything to mainstreet Flushing. This had to be 87'? This "kinging" of the 7 line was the best I had witnessed, brothers went so fukin hard.

I see a little mistake in history, T59 (trouble 59) did not write SM1, that was Spark 17, (Spark Master) who wrote with him, T59 did have a brother, but he wrote mainly on the street, not on the BMY and the timeline was more like 1775 - 1977.

Also at the end of the movie warrior's you can see the train that pulls into stillwell ave with SM1 and T59 on the 1st car.
