|Gang tags at 3700 N. Recreation Drive have finally been covered.|
Today we can report that the job has been done. While a few marks remain, the bulk of the tags have been covered with thick layers of tan paint.
Another Incomplete "Completion"

was removed on August 4, according to the city.
This brown box around 3800 N. Recreation Drive—behind the northeast baseball field's home plate, directly next to the Clock Tower Cafe—has been boldly marked by Latin Kings. As of Tuesday afternoon, the tags were still there.

DNAInfo Chicago reported on the new artwork, which livens up the walls around a small playground on the school's northwest corner, a few weeks ago. At the time, the project's centerpiece, a graffiti artist's "larger-than-life bear who dons boxing gloves" had "a petite crown," DNAInfo reported.
The bear character sports the cute crown in all of the artist's work and certainly has no secret meaning.
In gang-filled Chicago, though, the Latin Kings' hand signs form 3-pointed crowns and 3-pointed crowns are sometimes seen in their tags. All things considered, we're pleased to see the crown has been eliminated at Nettelhorst.
