  1. I live around the corner from the Amex carriage house and the building is attractive and looks like the reconstruction work is very good quality. However, the buildings on Collister Strret, between Laight and Hubert Streets are covered with grafitti. Indeed, many streets that have or are near the water tunnel construction sites are loaded with graffiti. Is anything being gone about the increasing assault by graffiti vandals?
