ABOUT @149st
Launched in 1998, the @149st Web site's primary objective is the preservation of the history of the art form developed on New York City's subways. It is a work-in-progress and the basis for several documentary projects including the book Graffiti New York and upcoming videos and exhibitions.

We are available for consulting, curating exhibitions and coordinating artists for hire.

@149st derives its name from the last existing writer's bench during the New York City subway aerosol art movement. 149th Street Grand Concourse, a subway station in the Bronx located on the 2 and 5 lines. A place where writers from all over the city came to meet, make plans, settle disputes and most of all bench. Visit the 149th Street station.

Some of the photographs on this site are of poor quality due to the fact that in many cases they are the only documentation in existence. Most were taken by writers themselves with non-adjustable small format cameras.

If any of the content of this site is believed to be inaccurate' and it is drawn to our attention by credible sources we will be happy to address the matter. If any of the site's content or lack thereof has offended any individuals or crews we extend our apologies.

All photographs and text on this site are the exclusive property of SPAR ONE and @149st unless otherwise specified, and may not be reproduced or redistributed in any form without written permission.
