    I'm sure there's another thread with travel tips for New York City, fuck writers asking about NY is a fucking graffiti cliche, but i searched and i cant find them. Anyway, here goes nothing...

    I'll be in New York city this july and im thinkin about staying at this Hostel near the Bowery (forgot the name) it's like 28 dollars a night. Does anybody knows of some place cheaper than that? Places to get paint in the city? Not montanas, im asking about real paint, Rust-O. Good pizza places or any cheap vegetarian restaurants.

    Thank you very mucho.

    in brooklyn go to any home deport, doodies or hardware store to get rusto and what not. also in manhattan you can go to canal street and check out pearl paints,scrap yard, and there is also another sort of like hidden hardware store on canal that got good paint for cheap.
    what part of nyc will you be in

    Yeah, maybe it is a stupid question, but most major american cities ive been to don't have Home Depot's at their downtowns or i haven't seen them.

    there's this mom-and-pop place around midtown where paint isn't locked and no one ever seems to be watching... if you can find it you really don't need much else.

    then again, i think it's a spot that a lot of people probably wouldn't want blown up so i'll just stay hush as to it's exact location.

    good luck young skywalker.

    Law says no, but its not enforced everywhere. Especially if you don't look like you're ten.

    And when I say its not enforced everywhere, I'm talking store to store, not region to region.

    I was told you can't buy spray paint within the city limits of Chicago...not sure if this is true, but I would be pissed if I went all the way there and found out the hard way.
