Greenwood Heights Graffiti on 5th

I've often said that the graffiti in Sunset Park is pretty sad. Not only is it all over the place, but it's unimaginative and ugly. It's vandalism without any kind of artistic redemption. I mean, at least tell the friend who can write legibly and/or draw well to be the scribe. Well, perhaps Greenwood Heights graffiti will start to travel southward. (Not that I WANT more graffiti; I'd just prefer something less boring.)

These two samples are within ten feet of each other on 5th Avenue in the 20's. The revolutionary soldier peers around the corner at the upside-down-heart-guy. The UDHG could be waving, saluting, or surrendering.
