Tom Seay Center Covered In Graffiti

This oughta look good to the Target execs.


  1. can anyone interpret this graffiti? is it gang-related or just general graffiti?

  2. Tough to say. At first glance it appears to be just taggers. There's been a lot of that going around lately (Common Cup in Rogers Park, that Little Mexican Cafe on Bryn Mawr). But part of it looks a little like a pitchfork, the logo of the GDs I believe. So hard to say. But at first glance, just some random tagger.

  3. Let's not forget to call 311 and file a report for graffiti blasters.

    The actual building address is 1025 W. Sunnyside.
    The graffiti is located on the side of the building.
    The surface is brown painted wood.
    It's below six feet.
    It's up to the caller as to whether or not is gang related. The call taker will ask.

    Hope this helps. I've been getting really quick results, almost always within 24 to 36 hours.

  4. I reported these tags yesterday at 5:15am and they were still there as of 12:15pm today. I specified them as gang tags due to the aesthetic nature in which they were done. There is also an additional tag on the corner door very similar to the one done in green. It is hoped that this was not the only call requesting removal.

  5. There is the same tag that was placed in WET CEMENT at the corner of Sheridan and Lakeview on the southeast corner. I called it in twice over the past 2 weeks to no affect. If someone else can please help by calling that in too, it would be appreciated!

  6. Sad isn't it? The "Average Joe" resident of Uptown needs to be versed in gang culture/language.

  7. This was removed sometime yesterday afternoon or evening. When I walked by at 5:18 a.m. is was painted over. Thank you to all of you who called this in for removal.
