the real deal steel....old nyc trains part 1.

Recommended Posts

ok, heres the plan. Kids are sleeping on learning their history...I cant preach about the old school cause I'm a new jack, not to mention that I'm from nowhere near new york, but I still think we all need to learn as much about our origins as we can. Beyond NYC all you have is the old standards (subway art, style wars, etc.) and the net. so I combed through hundreds of photos from the nycsubway.org site to pick out the ones with worthwhile graff for a series of posts. theres plenty I didnt include, so feel free to go and browse around...but this is the best of the best that I could find. beware...these file sizes are big...but its worth it...

ese, im glad someone here is trying to "keep it real", but unfortunately most people here dont care about any of this... whats worse: there is alotmore history that was never properly documented that is only learned by talking to people who were actually there. I'm not only talking about nyc, but the east coast in general, philly, boston, dc... even LA and SF, etc... learn as much history as you can, because thats were we all came from. you will find that history in different cities is no all that different and it will give you a solid understanding of the movement and respect, which is what most newjacks lack... anyway, since moving to NY, my views about writting have made a 180 and now i cant believe how ignoarnt i was before.... anyway... burp!

That is "UP"!

And that is fucking great that clear is putting out that book, and El Mas you are right on about the history, not only is it something that seperates the men from the toys, but I often find it so just great to hear that stuff, its like putting your hands in some fresh dirt, you feel rooted. When you can hear the honor and nostalgia of an old timer talk about "back in the day", puts the whole thing in perspective I think.

And on top of all that I just get fucking pumped when I see those saints!

Just as important as NY history is local history...it's interesting shit to try and find out who was running your city five or ten years ago....
