This mural was funded by donations from artists JEE, SIENIDE, T-KID, SPOT, JOE CONZO, FRANCISCO REYES ll and others. It was gifted to the community of Fordham Rd. and it’s residing neighbors from Morris Ave. The artists who participated in this project were not compensated for their time. “We did it for the love.” The mural took about a month to complete and well worth the wait. The community was happy and enjoyed a beautifully colored mural that was once an eyesore with gang-related graffiti. Approximately a month after completion two of the artists were arrested and charged with vandalism. Court case still pending and as for the mural… it is gone to the community’s dismay.
