When I saw this book I was kind of hesitant since I have been on a long and somewhat unsuccessful look for a New York graffiti book, but I decided to hope for the best and order this book. Once I received the book I was not disappointed. This book is pretty complete, covering the subways from the early 70s all the way through modern graffiti. What I liked best about this book is that it didn't simply focus on bombing or piecing, it showed both styles of graffiti and explained the origins of each. If you want a good graff book then buy this book, you'll be happy that you did.

This book is pretty thick and has tons of great photos and a lot of text to read. i feel like its one of the better graff books out there, and ive read a lot. the only thing i dont like about it, is its more about piecing and less about bombing, but thats all prefrence. theres a lot of good quotes from past and present nyc writers that i do find very intresting. definetly worth adding to any collection.

We go to New York about once a year. I had seen graffitti but never really understood the significance of it. This book does a great job providing history and direction on the art of Grafitti.

I love this book. It's a great review of the history of graffiti. There was so much I never knew about the art. I bought it for my daughter as a surprise gift. Her cousin wrote the book. She loves it and proudly displays it on her coffee table in Denver. It's a facinating book for anyone who appreciates art and the history behind a specific genre.

I got this amazing, colorful, and vivid graffiti book for my better half. He is a talented artist who draws inspiration from the multifarious styles he grew up seeing on the streets of New York. If you're an art enthusiast or are looking for a cool gift for a graphic designer or someone who appreciates New York urban culture, this book is a great pick.

This is the best book I've seen on NY graffiti. It does an excellent job of presenting the history and context of the art form, and includes a plethora of high-quality photos. The photography demonstrates the energy and creativity of graffiti artists.

I read this book after reading "Graffiti LA," and this one is also a great book. I do not have much to say about this book because it is what it is. Very inspirational if you are interested in graffiti art or any form of modern art.
