QUEEN CITY GRAFFITI

Headlining today’s post … Snak

Last weekend, while on family business in Cincinnati, Charm City Streets managed to carve a few hours free from the schedule. With camera in hand, the first destination was the water channel on the east side of town.

Duck Creek is a small tributary of the Little Miami River that passes through the Oakley and East Hyde Park neighborhoods. Years ago, the construction of Interstate 71 covered much of Duck Creek and then transformed the remaining run into a concrete channel. The retaining walls lining the waterway provide thousands upon thousands of linear feet of concrete canvas, and graff writers have made good use of every inch.

Charm City Streets last visited Cincinnati two years ago. At that time, the Duck Creek channel was chock full of new artwork. Each day one would see graff writers at work. On this latest visit, for some unknown reason, there were only a few recent pieces. Oddly, the majority of the artwork was from 2015 and earlier. In a nearby rail tunnel Charm City Streets encountered this same peculiar situation. Whatever the reason for the low turnover, there were a number of excellent pieces.
