Senator Martin Golden has instated a graffiti clean-up day initiative on Friday, September 8. He’s asking local businesses to submit the necessary waivers for the Graffiti Free NYC program.
The program is a citywide effort managed by the Mayor’s office and a team of New York City agencies.
“The Graffiti Free NYC initiative allows New Yorkers to take graffiti removal into their own hands by either calling in sites for clean-up or driving their own clean-up efforts,” writes GFNYC on their website.
They provide supplies (if available) or send small crews to paint the walls or gates.
“I will welcome the Graffiti Free NYC program to 18th Avenue, this Friday at Noon. Through the efforts of my office, graffiti waivers have been submitted to the City of New York to authorize the cleaning of graffiti from 6621 and 6623 18th Avenue following recent reports. I encourage stores to submit the necessary waivers to my office so to have the Graffiti Free NYC program help to improve the quality of life of our commercial streets,” he writes on his Facebook page.
For questions, call Golden’s office at 718-238-6044.
