Lately, grafitti "artists" have been taking their work to "new heights". Turning the brick facades of some of our city's buildings into their personal "canvasses", some enterprising "taggers" have figured out a way to spray paint on the sides of buildings up to twenty feet high. Giant letters spelling out the word "LAZER" can be seen on the sides of some buildings around town.
Even more distressing, the new stone retaining wall on the south side of the River Des Peres which leads to beautiful new pedestrian and cyclist bridge that crosses River Des Peres at Morganford, has had four or five of the wall sections defaced with graffiti. Removing grafitti from a natural stone wall has got to be a very expensive and difficult process.
Please, if you see anyone in the process of spray painting graffitti, dial 911.
