Steeler Country

In Uncategorized on April 7, 2010 at 12:00 pm

Because Pittsburgh boasts such hilly terrain, our vandals are a daring bunch. They love to climb bridges, hang off buildings, and, in this case, scale sheer concrete walls.

Pittsburgh doesn’t have a lot of gang activity, so the graffiti is pretty tame, even endearing. The most famous local vandal, “Mook,” was as admired for his fearlessness as much as he was despised by officials.

This specimen, a giant black-and-gold “Steelers” logo, is positioned above the Boulevard of the Allies — and in the late afternoon, as drivers speed away from Downtown, the concrete is iridescent with sunlight.
