Traditionally, when a graffiti artist risks arrest to paint a train in New York, he or she usuallytargets a subway car, but one enterprising writer decided to go against the grain by painting a Long Island Railroad train instead.


Earlier today, I shot a photo of a LIRR commuter train near the Arch Street Yards emblazoned with the name “POTNA” on the side and what’s left of 5Pointz as a backdrop, creating quite a juxtaposition between two aerosol worlds which are related, yet couldn’t be further apart.
