and I use the word barrio with affection. I've lived in this neighborhood around 20 years and, in all fairness, it is far nicer than it used to be. I used to have to stay away from windows after dark for fear of being hit by stray bullets. Nowadays, I haven't heard so much as a backfire in years.
However, it seems there's still a small problem with graffiti (and there are still pairs of shoes hanging from a neighborhood power line - it's best to steer clear of that block after dark). Thankfully, finding graffiti removal phone numbers/websites is fairly easy.
Since this sign is on my usual walk route, I'll let you know if/when this sign gets cleaned or replaced.
