UP ON THE ROOFTOP: Tag, Tag, Tag

Alderman Tunney? Hi, um, CWB reader "J" sent in this pic of some artwork that has appeared atop your flagship restaurant.

Here's the link to "Mayor Daley's Graffiti Blasters" so you can report it online.

  1. Seriously CWB? I get that you're trying to roast Tunney, but I doubt he owns those buildings. You guys and anyone else who sees graffiti in the neighborhood should use the link you posted or call 311 and report it. The city is pretty expeditious about removing graffiti when people report it.

    1. Tunnochio walks from his Sheffield office East on Belmont towards that awful restaurant repeatedly. He may have not perceived it there.
      Give the ostrich Alderman a break!
      He rarely pulls his head out of the sand!
      Come to think of it, it will probably be gone before he notices it, then when it is addressed by some peasant constituent, he will tell them that it was "their perception".
      Holy Shit! Maybe we should demand to see Tunnochio's birth certificate!!! Then in one fell swoop we can see if he's part ostrich, or all puppet!!!

    From what we can see in the photo, it appears that the "artists" would have had to access his rooftop in order to paint a good part of that.

    We did report it.

  3. This looks like the view from my old apartment near Belmont and Sheffield. I remember the OBEY painting that was on the side of that building. But I remember back in 2011 or 2012, graffiti jerks went up and ruined the painting. Now, graffiti is all over the place. I think that the punks are getting up there illegally. These punks are literally shitting all over the neighborhood.

  4. Do you think our streets are trashier? - blame the grid! As the city converts to the grid for trash pick-up, ward supers are being overwhelmed with needing to provide transport for truck laborers who can no longer ride on the big blue trucks to their routes. And spending our time following our trucks to be sure they are on route, on time or else it screws up the grid for the next day. These Supers no longer have time to do the rest of their jobs, one of which is to drive our wards looking for graffiti, broken lights, downed trees after heavy rains, etc. But that's okay, fewer supers reporting graffiti, means there is less graffiti in the city, so we have fewer graffiti trucks. (Sound like a theme). If you want graffiti cleaned up quickly, it helps to report that the graffiti contains derogatory language - that type gets priority cleaning over reports of "tagging"; and "gang symbols". - Your friendly Streets & Sanitation super.
