and costs taxpayers, merchants and homeowners millions of dollars to remove and repair.

The legislature also finds that when unchecked, graffiti presents the image of a deteriorating community, a community that longer cares about itself, a community that shows evidence of urban blight. Not only is graffiti an assault upon individual sensibilities, it is another

for people to leave the city prompting a further downward spiral of economic and social conditions with severe consequences for the city of New York.

firm or corporation or any public agency or instrumentality, without the
express permission of the owner or operator of said property.

Making graffiti is a class A nisdemeanor.
$ 145.65 Possession of graffiti instruments.

A person is guilty of possession of graffiti instruments when he possesses any tool, instrument, article, substance, solution or other compound designed or commonly used to etch, paint, cover, draw upon or otherwise place a mark upon a piece of property which that person has no permission or authority to etch, paint, cover, draw upon or otherwise mark, under circumstances evincing an intent to use

in order to damage such property.
