Graffiti is back with a vengeance in Williamsburg, these photos from a tipster show. More than a decade ago, Williamsburg artists covered the area’s old warehouses with street art. These tags look a little more old school. The resurgence of graffiti since the COVID-19 shutdown is citywide, according to The New York Times.

“The city’s coronavirus lockdown and subsequent rise in unemployment have created the perfect conditions for a new generation of graffiti writers,” said the paper. Have you noticed an uptick in graffiti in your neighborhood since the shutdown?
