it's true-- and not just going up once in each borough-- it really means getting up large all across the major neighborhoods. very few graf artists have truly gone all city in the last 25 years-- Revs and Cost, JA, Cope-- a few others. Most concentrate on one or two boroughs, and have a few pieces in each of the others.

It doesn't just refer to trains anymore, or New York, it now just means getting up everywhere in whatever city you live in.
