This week, I reported on AOL News' Bill Morris' account of the removal of the Lora Deli graffiti mural, a decade-old piece on Avenue D.
Now Mr. Morris sends in the following photo of the gray-washed wall:
Graffiti photographer Karla Murray, says Morris, was prophetic when she predicted about the buffed wall's future: "it'll probably get covered over with tags--the kind of graffiti nobody wants."
Morris told me, "Less than 48 hours after she said that, a crew of no-talent taggers bombed the Lora Deli wall. Thank you, Mayor Bloomberg, for working so hard to improve the quality of life for all New Yorkers."
