AOK was one of the last active crews on New York City's subway system. In the late 1980s they were particularly active on the BMT lines. They continued to write despite pressure from the New York City Police Department's Vandal Squad and the Mayor's office. During this time period it was the city's objective to completely eliminate painting from the subway. Some RIS members continued to write during the clean train era. Partial listing of AOK membership: REAS, GHOST, WOLF, MESH, FUEL, PURE, KELT, VEN
(AOK and the RIS crew shared many members in common.)

More on AOK in the future.
