Our eagle-eyed Sanitation Supervisor Carlos Valladares spotted graffiti on one of our Big Belly Solar Trash Cans and one of our new signs in Dante Park over the weekend. Carlos acted quickly and was able to remove the graffiti without damaging any of the signage. We are saddened by incidents of vandalism and graffiti, and work hard to remove tags and stickers immediately. Please help us keep Lincoln Square beautiful! If you see something, please call 311 or let us know at (212) 581-3774.
