GREENBURGH – Every time Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner rides his bike on a Westchester County-owned bike path, he invariably comes across graffiti defacing the area.
He says county workers have to take time away from their normal routine
to paint over it, so he has come up with an idea – a Graffiti Busters
volunteer squad where the county would provide paint and brushes and volunteer
members of the group would address the problem.
Feiner said if the graffiti is covered over often, it might make an impact on those who are tagging the trails.
“I feel that if they see their work is constantly going to be destroyed, they are going to stop messing up the area and detracting from the beautiful parks,” he said.
Feiner called attention to Westchester’s South County bike path, which he said is overrun with graffiti on bridges, trees and rocks. That, he said, is an embarrassment for the entire county.

The ‘artists’ are tagging everything from walls to signs
