Brooklyn Public Library’s Ryder Branch Graffiti Gone!

We did it! – Maybe? – In Bensonhurst Bean’s first civic victory of sorts, the 23rd Avenue side of the Brooklyn Public Library’s Ryder Branch is now graffiti free!

We first brought you a photo of the poorly spray painted tags last week. Since first seeing the graffiti, we called the library and were assured by a female employee that the building’s unsightly scrawlings would be buffed by the library’s custodian.

It looks like she wasn’t lying.

We here at the Bean would like to think our phone call had something to do with this check in the win column for quality of life, even if we just sped up the cleaning by a few days.
