A team effort led to the cleanup of vandalism on a medical building.

Lindenwood residents united to take down a tag.

On the weekend of September 29, vandals hit nearly an entire wall of the medical building located at 82-12 151st Avenue, residents said.

Dr. Anthony Napolitano, who practices in and owns the building, noticed the graffiti, according to Lindenwood Alliance President Joann Ariola.

Napolitano planned to pay to remove the tags out of his own pocket, but Ariola said she advised him there were several options to remove the graffiti: one through the mayor’s office, and another through Councilmemer Eric Ulrich’s office.

Ariola said Napolitano opted for Ulrich’s cleanup program, City Solution — contracted through the Woodhaven Business Improvement District.

By Monday, October 8, City Solution was at the site to remove the vandalism.

The 106th Precinct is investigating this as a criminal case.

Napolitano’s next step is to coat the wall to prevent further marking, along with installing lights and video cameras around the area. He plans on paying for the preventative measures.

Ariola noted the quick response was thanks to a community effort to keep the neighborhood clean and safe.

“Once again, The Lindenwood Alliance proves that working together gets things done,” she said.
