    MAYOR BLOOMBERG KICKS OFF CITYWIDE GRAFFITI CLEANUP
    WITH ANTI-GRAFFITI TASK FORCE

    Mayor Urges Community Groups to Join Anti-Graffiti Efforts and Improve Quality of Life


    Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg today announced a multi-agency graffiti cleanup, which will be led by the City's Anti-Graffiti Task Force with the assistance of local community groups throughout the five boroughs. Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes, Senior Advisor to the Mayor Vincent La Padula, Community Assistance Unit (CAU) Commissioner Jonathan Greenspun, Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe, and Sanitation Commissioner John Doherty joined Mayor Bloomberg for the announcement in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

    "Graffiti is not just an eyesore; it is an invitation to criminals and a message to citizens that we don't care," Mayor Bloomberg said. "This strategic effort will enlist community groups and coordinate City agencies to remove graffiti as soon as it appears and punish those who are responsible. No matter what neighborhood you live in, you should not have to tolerate this urban blight."

    "Graffiti contributes to a feeling of disorderliness and fear," said La Padula, who oversees the Task Force. "Those are ingredients for increased crime. The City's goal is to work with local civic groups to restore order and preserve community life."

    Coordinated by CAU, the Task Force will attack graffiti throughout the five boroughs, focusing on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx; Borough Park, Bay Ridge, Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick in Brooklyn; Inwood, Turtle Bay, and Harlem in Manhattan; Astoria, Sunnyside, and Woodside in Queens; and New Dorp, Port Richmond, and West Brighton in Staten Island.

    During the anti-graffiti campaign, the Department of Sanitation will operate two power washers and two paint trucks. The Department of Parks and Recreation will operate power washers, paint, and spray rigs to remove graffiti and expand its inspections to look for graffiti in the City's large parks and small playgrounds. The Economic Development Corporation will operate a fleet of ten trucks to eliminate graffiti in the City's industrial, commercial, and maritime areas.

    The NYPD will provide the resources for extensive investigations into graffiti crimes and will serve as the enforcement arm of the Task Force. In addition to regular patrols that target this form of vandalism, the Police Department will continue to use tips to find and arrest individuals who commit graffiti crimes. In addition, the Mayor's Criminal Justice Coordinator will work with the Police Department, the District Attorneys, and the court system to ensure that graffiti violations are vigorously enforced and prosecuted. To report graffiti vandalism, citizens can call the NYPD's 24-hour quality of life hotline at (888) 677-LIFE (5433).

    The Task Force is working with community groups in every borough, including ACORN in the Bronx, the People's Fire House, Inc., in Brooklyn, Heritage Health and Housing, Inc., in Manhattan, the Sunnyside Garden Roosevelt Court Association in Queens, and the 122nd Precinct Community Council in Staten Island. CAU will provide paint and supplies to these local civic organizations to help clean up graffiti in their neighborhoods. Since May, aided by 1,500 gallons of paint recently donated by Home Depot, CAU has distributed 716 gallons of paint and 1,979 supplies, including brushes, roller sleeves, poles, paint trays, and drop cloths. To obtain paint supplies from CAU, citizens can call (212) 788-7413.


    The Task Force, established by Executive Order No. 24 of 1995, includes representatives from various City agencies, including the Department of Buildings, the Department of Business Services, the Department of Consumer Affairs, the Department of Cultural Affairs, the Department of Citywide Administrative Services, the Fire Department, the Housing Authority, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, the Human Resources Administration, the Landmarks Preservation Commission, the Law Department, the Department of Parks and Recreation, the Police Department, the Department of Probation, the Department of Sanitation, the Department of Transportation, and the Department of Youth and Community Development. This year the Task Force already has cleaned 638 locations throughout the City.

    hahahaha that program has been in effect since guiliani's 1st year in office and everyone knows how bombed ny still is, the funniest thing i saw was about 2 years ago they were buffing a door in midtown, i went to a bar to have a couple beers left 2 hours later and the buffed door already had a new tag on it, not only does new york have thousands of writers of there own, thousands more make pilgrimages there each year, so bloomberg you can suck my cock,

    Exactly. Efforts to stop graf can be effective in certain places ... New York isn't one of them.

    Don't sleep on those free buckets -- get your roll on.

    hahahah this is great......but its kinda fuckin sad that so much money is being put into a hopeless cause....geez build some new schools, plant some fuckin trees, clean up the parks full of hobos and crack addicts, fund shit like aids, breast cancer, women fleeing from abuse, or breed goats...anything is gonna be more successfull than trying to rid a city of graffiti

    certainly was a mighty fine picture-packed post. is this anything new? and we both know all they need is one poster boy, the chances of it being either you or I is pretty slim.

    I really don't think it is possible for the city to ever have graffiti wiped out. it worked on the trains and on the highways but NYC is far too large with far too many writers for this ever to take effect. However I have been noticing alot of avenues catching the buff especially in Brooklyn. I hate to see all that history get taken out, Easy and Joz gates and all. It's pretty sad.
