    I live in a li'l town west of Roc-City, NY. There were 2 local crews here, but it seems like they've either gotten out of it or gotten married and moved away, because I am the ONLY person in my town still putting new stuff up. I go past the same old stuff everyday, stuff as in poorly-written tags, neither have ever done any pieces or anything, just tag saturation. I did live near Boston for 8 years, but that was before I was into writing, so i wouldn't know how the scene is there. I go into Rochester pretty often, but I've never met up with any other writers.

    We've got too many toys and gang shit. Quite a few writers are hostile to one another, but that's not to say we don't have some nice, friendly ones around here. Most people have a network of other writers they know, and we get little writer cliques (a big part of that is race; there's kind of deep fissure between the mexicans and white kids around here...)

    In my city the graf culture is nonexistent...
    The only graff around is on the trains that pass by that comes in from other cities...

    mines pretty normal.
    you got one or two crews that get up a lot and hit up train yard in a subsection of my city.
    and you got your fucking toy crew that write graffiti for looks.

    well im from newyork, lot of cut and dry shit here, if you take the train youll probaly see a few peices here and there, same thing with chill spots, but mostly everything else are throwies and handstyles, as for beef with crews and other bombers, i personally dont go over anybody unless they go over me or we have a personal dispute, theres alot of us with mentalitys like that but even more who are just in it for the "fame" and will go over anyone just to get their name out, its kinda like that here, than you have the dumbasses who just started writing and are going over everyone because they watched state your name one too many times and think theyr hard, after a few monthes either they wise up, or just stop because everything they do gets covered, so yeah theres beef, but mostly, respect is given to those who respect

    my town blows when it comes to graff. the majority of it is gang related. i asked my friend if he knew anybody who did graffiti around where i live, he says "norte". i told him "no, actual graff writers who have a tag name and junk" he laughs.

    my stickers are pretty dominant around where i live. i check the spots everyday.

    but i want to be in stockton so bad. they know what the fucks up...

    everyones chilled out round here, theres beef here and there and toys crossing everyone out, but for the most part everyones chilled, and tehre a website dedicated to our county that apparently most of the writers in our area are on tehre or have their stuff on the site...
