Senator Martin Golden has instated a graffiti clean-up day initiative on Friday, September 8. He’s asking local businesses to submit the necessary waivers for the Graffiti Free NYC program.

The program is a citywide effort managed by the Mayor’s office and a team of New York City agencies.

“The Graffiti Free NYC initiative allows New Yorkers to take graffiti removal into their own hands by either calling in sites for clean-up or driving their own clean-up efforts,” writes GFNYC on their website.

They provide supplies (if available) or send small crews to paint the walls or gates.

“I will welcome the Graffiti Free NYC program, this Friday at Noon. Through the efforts of my office, graffiti waivers have been submitted to the City of New York to authorize the cleaning of graffiti following recent reports. I encourage stores to submit the necessary waivers to my office so to have the Graffiti Free NYC program help to improve the quality of life of our commercial streets,” he writes on his Facebook page.

For questions, call Golden’s office.

    Thank you Senator Golden. This is an important and necessary initiative for the community. We hope it is successful for all of Bensonhurst and South Brooklyn. Graffiti must be stopped. It makes the neighborhood look run down and dirty. Graffiti must go and be cleaned up!
