Urban art is a tradition is in our community, from the murals of PLG Arts to the many paintings PLOG has cataloged along our streets. But this past week saw the creation of a piece that we rate as unwarranted and probably unpermitted.

Here’s hoping this new work on Winthrop Street and Flatbush Avenue just flakes away.
