Charm City Streets walked miles and miles each day last week seeking out recent and new-to-me murals in and around Brooklyn.

GLOBAL WARMING AND SMOKIN’-HOT GRAFFITI

Headlining today’s post … Rath by @heavylox

Climate scientists have concluded global warming, if left unchecked, will cause sea levels to rise. Verifiable scientific data indicates rising sea levels would inundate large areas of New York City and the boroughs by the turn of the century.

In a recent peer reviewed article in Squirrelly Scientific Amurican, scientists concerned about graffiti’s impact on global warming requested the public’s assistance with their investigation. Alarmed by all the dire warnings, Charm City Streets submitted documentation to these scientists. You need not file a Freedom of Information Act request to review this documentation. Charm City Streets now openly shares its information with you.

Back in 2009, folks living in the Welling Court neighborhood of Queens asked Ad Hoc Art Gallery to help them clean up and enhance their community, and the Welling Court Mural Project was born. Every year since then, Ad Hoc Art invites artists from far and wide to help turn the neighborhood into an open-air art gallery. Their annual block party in June is a celebrated event.

BROOKLYN STREET ART – GRAFFITI 2

Headlining today’s post … Ribs on conga drums

The first few snowflakes have begun to fall in Baltimore, and outdoors the scene is calm and bright. That will soon change … for the worse. Weather forecasters say Old Man Winter is hell-bent on walloping the Mid-Atlantic with a wicked winter storm that will leave the area snowbound and as cold as ice. Maryland and surrounding states have already declared a state of emergency. Before hunkering down for the long wintry weekend, Charm City Streets shares with you the remaining graffiti pieces it encountered during visits to Brooklyn in 2015. Hopefully, this art display will bring a welcome splash of color and delight to the drab and dreary weekend ahead.
