nyc_graffitiNYC --- A new graffiti abatement program put forth by the police commissioner has beat cops carrying cans of spray paint to fill in and cover graffiti artists work in an effort to clean up the city --> Many cops are thinking it's a waste of resources, but we're waiting to see someone make a project of it. Maybe instructions for the cops on where to fill-in?

The NYPD is arming its cops with cans of spray paint and giving them art-class-style lessons to tackle the scourge of urban graffiti, The Post has learned.

Shootings are on the rise across the city, but the directive from Police Headquarters is to hunt down street art and cover it with black, red and white spray paint, sources said... READ ON

SAN FRANCISCO --- We've been street skating in San Francisco since the early 90s- dodging police and getting kicked out of spots waiting for the city to build a nice skatepark. They did build 2 great parks, Crocker and Potrero, but those parks cater to transition skaters but nothing for us street skaters... till now.

San Francisco is set to open the amazing looking little Soma Skate Plaza which looks a bit cramped, but who's complaining since it's a few blocks from FFDG and Fecal Face.


Soma Skate Park in SF is soon to open.

We peeked in on Monday night, and it looks like they're just about finished. Looks super fun good times. --> Hey, did you know Tony Hawk donated 10K for it?

d0ntb33vil --- A new media art installation by local artist, Harris David Harris exploits a loophole in wireless networks at Google and Facebook bus stops in San Francisco.

Over the past two weeks, bus riders' devices automatically connected to Harris's routers while waiting for the bus. Instead of granting internet access, riders see a animated image of the sidewalk before them.

SAN FRANCISCO --- For 37 years, the Flax art supply store has held its ground near the corner of Market and Valencia, a crossroads where the North Mission heads toward the eastern edge of the Castro district.

Now third-generation store owner Howard Flax is going to have to move. He's the fallout of a development plan to replace his store with a nine-story, 160-unit condo building.

"We were given plenty of notice by the developer. We are looking for a new space in San Francisco comparable to what we have. Given the real estate market, we might have to downsize a little bit," said Flax, who followed his father, Herman, and grandfather, Phillip, at the helm of the store, whose current home is known for its distinctive tilted-letter sign. ~continue reading
