slides: Worcester’s Graffiti Problem in Photos

Monday, January 06, 2014

 

From a former Friendly's, to storefronts on Pleasant Street, to rail cars and overpasses, it seems that no place in Worcester is safe from the blight of graffiti.

GoLocal talked with members of the Worcester business community -- as well as the Sheriff's office -- about not just the burden of the property damage on business owners, but also possible next steps to address the issue.

See examples of the Worcester graffiti problem BELOW.
