Broken Windows - Graffiti NYCby James T. Murray, Karla L. Murray
Full of vibrant, energetic and explosive images, Broken Windows - Graffiti NYC documents the flowering of the graffiti movement of the post-train era. In the 1980's graffiti was pushed out of the subways as the trains were cleaned once and for all. In the 1990's, much of the graffiti action in New York migrated to the city's walls, enabling the 'writers' to execute more refined and concept-driven large-scale pieces. By the end of decade, this new medium was being used to great effect. Photographers James & Karla Murray took great pains to faithfully capture an unprecedented re-birth of the movement documenting the most significant murals created between 1996 - 2001. Broken Windows contains insightful interviews, an extensive selection of womens' graffiti, and features the work of more than 180 artists from The United States, Germany, France, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Holland, Italy, and Norway.

Not only does this book have the best peices and burners, it also intervies the best New York City writers like SEEN,PINK,COPE2,CES, EZO,YES2 and many more. Theres a dope section on caps alone where all the writers talk about their favorite caps and brands of paint. Topics range from the Vandal Squad to beef to how artists get down & do productions. The best thing about the book is the amount of productions & peices that are shown ....this is modern New York graff at its finest.Definetly worth the money ...I also recomend the sequal 'Burning New York'.
