McCarren Pool Tunnel Graffiti

Published on: June 9th, 2010 | Last updated: October 16, 2016 Written by:

Deep below McCarren Pool, where only the most insane insomniac isotopic explorers dare wander, we came across still another batch of graffiti. These tags are much fewer than those of the locker room area, as these tunnels were likely pitch black in the 1980s when these guys hit this place.

This post is dedicated to the Ninja Team of the 80s. Deam, Mint, Finez, Gem, Ivette. If any of you are out there and want to relive your youth, give me a call!

Jim - obviously very old but definitely not from 1924, since that was 12 years before this place was built. Anyone have any other guess what the numbers mean? (Maybe there's a hatch down here with some guy named Desmond in it?)

Deam (1980s)

SP (1980s)

Finez, Gem (1980s)

Deam (1980s)

Barely visible pencil drawing of... ? Rat? Bunny?  Definitely older than the 80s

Ivette, Mint 1980s

Theme, late 80s early 90s (very well known Greenpoint king)

EXILE UF/TRK - late 80s early 90s graffiti.

Skil 1985
