Posted in ART, BOOKS, GRAFFITI on February 14, 2009 by sacredstitch

Joe Rivera provides a great insight into both the good and bad old days of Graffiti, from the 1980’s thru 2000s. With lurid and fast paced narratives worthy of Mario Puzo or Donald Westlake, his stories read like adventure stories, with one difference: They are all true. Any fan of Graffiti, The New York City Subway System or New York City itself will find this book endlessly fascinating.
