A lotta queens people lately were talking about the old woolworth’s store on Ditmars and 31st street. In it’s recent conversion to a CVS, old siding was taken down out front, revealing the old woolworth’s name for a short time before it was covered over again.
What no one seems to have talked about though was the panel on the corner of the building which revealed an array of old historic graffiti tags. See the photo below. How many old school names do you see? Looks like an original Chino tag to me, along with a Rost, note, and others.
This panel was covered over a day after this shot was taken, so the graffiti, just like the old outline of the old woolworth’s sign, is entombed once again.
