Teste Block Unwrapped

teste unwrapped

The Teste Block, part of the ProvidenceG residential project on Dorrance Street at Weybosset Street has been unwrapped. And it appears to already have some graffiti on it. Sigh.

  • Yeh, it’s infuriating. I have some tags that I have to paint over on the woodwork of our building tomorrow. The Mayor’s Grafitti Patrol has removed two major — illegible, so what’s the point? — tags from our 120 year-old brick. Sigh, indeed.

    But here’s the upside: I’ve been waiting for the wrapping to come off that building on DOrrance and look at the splendid windows they’ve saved(?), restored(?) had put in (?)!! That’s a major civic improvement.

    As opposed to the work of the grafitto barbarians.
