2021 – Hackensack’s Union Street Park Graffiti Art

                             (ignore April 30, 2017 publish date – this was published on September 17, 2021)

I’ve photographed (and posted) about this whenever I happened to pass by and notice a complete change in the artwork. This has been going on at the other end of my street – almost a mile away – for at least 8 years and probably longer.

The walls that feature this dazzling work belong to two businesses that I’m going to have to visit and find out who organizes all this and how often it changes, so I can cover it on a steady basis.

Most recently, I shot the latest artwork on August 26 with a return on September 3 to correct an omission.

These are ALL panoramic shots done on my iPhone, so you’ll have to click many of them TWICE to see them full-size – ESPECIALLY the last one, where you’ll also have to do some scrolling.

The above pic is the establishing shot of both walls – what I saw when I entered the park. I didn’t need to interfere with the basketball players at all because all the other shots could be done close to the wall,

Starting on the left, here’s that whole wall:


The next four pix are the closeups of what’s on that wall:



And now, the whole right wall:


And its components:


A better way to view everything:


My opinion? When viewed as a whole, there’s a kind of sameness in some of the more-intricate ones. Overall, it looks too same-sized, neat and orderly. In the past, they seemed to be more wildly different

Check out this photo-stitch from 2013……….much more chaotically diverse:


But what do I know? I’m just a photographer.

So I’ll find out how often this changes and document it on a more-regular basis and then you can make up your own mind, OK?

Meanwhile, can I get some opinions on what you’ve seen here?

    I see your point in how controlled it seems. Still, it’s good enough.
