A glance out the front
or rear window
of the A
or C train
s as they make their way between the stations of Brooklyn
will get you glimpse
s of wide columns spraypaint
ed matte white
and with a large amount of writing
on them. Of course
, the trains
rarely go slow enough to let you read
any of the text
, and even a stopped train
usually isn't so in a convenient location
for reading out the side window
, so one is left wondering what exactly these are.
They are the memoirs of Revs.
Late at night, Revs has been tagging his life story under the streets of NY. They're hard to get a good look at, so i don't know too much about them.
He claims that this is a one time effort; if the MTA covers up any of these tags, that section of his history will simply be erased. So far, since it's very deep within the tunnels, the large majority of it (AFAIK) is still there.
