Bolshevik Criminal Plague Graffiti Plagues Sheepshead Bay

bolshevik criminal plague graffiti

These signs were seen painted onto lamp post bases in Sheepshead Bay, recently.

The message, stenciled on in the bright yellow and red paint, says “23 Bolshevik Criminal Plague”. This might as well be a message in another language, because the message is completely a mystery. It’s not clear whether the word “ELMSEEE” is part of the message, since it appears only on one post.

The lamp post on the left was seen in front of the construction scaffolding at 1702 Avenue Z. The lamp post on the right was seen on Sheepshead Bay Road near Jerome Avenue.
