FeelNYC´s review of the best graffiti spots in N.Y.: also recommends you check out the following! If you´re looking for art supplies around the So Ho and TriBeCa area than look no further than the scrap yard. This store is specially equipped for graffiti artists and although the store itself is small it has a surprisingly large selection of cans and colored markers. It was also rumored that back in the day rival graffiti crews would get into fights out front of the store and it was not uncommon to have your art supplies robbed. Thankfully the location is safe for all to visit but this little store still remains a hallmark of graffiti culture in the Big Apple. Location: (300 W Broadway between Canal St & Grand St)
