    Brooklyn Street Art

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     CitizenDope says in the area of Brooklyn in which he resides, graffiti is celebrated. 'There are even art appreciation tours that include some of the street art,' he says. He describes street art as being the culture in Brooklyn, but he says he is not a fan of tagging culture. Instead, he enjoys the graffiti that is presented as art. 'The capability and expression of the street artists in the area has transformed streets that were considered common industrial sites. What impresses me most is that they can't be bought,' he says.
