Graffiti

I wonder about such things. I wonder who would walk a couple of miles, climb over a chain link fence with some spray paint cans just to do this:

Why are they not doing something else?

Can’t even read what it says, what does it say?

On the roll up door. What does that mean?

On an unrelated note, I wonder what Hurricane Irene thought of the Piping Plover nesting areas? Last year we were able to drive down the temporary road on the sandbar and deliver fuel, a new generator and remove stuff.  This was an issue because the Piping Plovers nest on the ground in the sand dunes.  Before we could use the road we were given a briefing by Connecticut Fish and Wild life where we were told that destroying a nest would result in a $75,000 fine.

As this area was completely washed over by the Long Island sound, the answer is “Not much.”

  1. Paul I hope they are not still trying to break into the building out there?
    For awhile it was the thing to do lucky for Sonitrol we were able to catch a number of people.
    I would think now that the cottages are gone things have quieted down out there.
    The building is like a sitting duck out there you keep your fingers crossed that nothing bad will happen. Now that the weather is cooling down I would think people are not wondering out there as much as if it was still summer to do damage and more spray painting.
    I hope you never have to walk out there from Long Beach in Stratford at 3am can get a little
    scary.

  2. Ed, I can think of no reason in the world why I would be walking down to pleasure beach at 3 am. 5 am maybe, 6 am more likely.

    As far as I can tell, no one has tried to break in, I always make sure the Sonitrol alarm system is activated before I depart. At some point, hopefully before winter, we should have the IP video cameras running. Perhaps I will do a web page called the “vandal cam”

  3. There are websites with small “tag” guides, but many of them seem to be West Coast only.

    Photo 1 has “SHK” in large letters; then “Mr. Shy[?]”, far end a bunch of possible gang names (“ew.”, something illegible, “shy”, “nosey”, “lesn”, “Pokr”) and the legend “since `94.” Also “ACE BFM.” I can’t read the stuff on the cinderblocks.

    Photo 2 has “SHK” again, something illegible, “SIN” and “LEM” on the cinderblocks.

    The whole thing looks either like a bunch of Hispanic taggers or possibly Russian taggers (the letters look quasi-Cyrillic)….because of all the names I would guess this was done by five or six people in 15 minutes or less. I would forward these photos to the police; they might know who these idiots are. Also, the clowns might not have known this building housed an off-site transmitter building for a radio station.
