This private property at the corner of Garfield and 6th was hit with gang-related graffiti about two weeks ago from two rival gangs. As of today the graffiti has been removed from it and another house near the inter-section. Usually, private property owners, especially those who do not live in the neighborhood, take much longer than developers or Metro to remove such graffiti, but the owner of this house has removed it quickly. Hence, just about all of the vandalism that occurred at Garfield and 6th has been repaired. I am sure that most Salemtown residents are no doubt grateful to all who play a part in responding to the recent rash of vandalism.
