The Bronx is a many splendored borough.

Paul Simon wrote so many innocent years ago that "the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls, tenement halls."

I wonder, then, where the words of divorce lawyers are writ? Apparently on boarded up old warehouses in the South Bronx running alongside the pockmarks of Bruckner Boulevard.

Meanwhile back in Manhattan, the urban bump and grind of graffiti is still alive and kicking. Perhaps under the Trumpstadt, we will see a resurgence of the form--especially as poverty, powerlessness and anger increase.
