Councilman Robert Holden sent paint crews out to Andrews Avenue Bridge in Maspeth twice in one week to cover graffiti.

Just days after City Councilman Robert Holden sent painters from a nonprofit to the Andrews Avenue Bridge in Maspeth to paint over graffiti, vandals were back at it again with new tags on the fresh paint.

Crews from the Fedcap Group, a nonprofit that addresses quality of life issues, were at the bridge in Maspeth on Dec. 21 but had to return just days later to cover up a new blemish on the guardrail, according to Charlene Stubbs, who posted about it on Facebook.

“We will continue to tackle this issue as quickly as we can, and we encourage the community to continue reaching out to our office with graffiti locations,” Holden said. “We will also continue working with the 104th and 108th Precincts on chronic graffiti sites near industrial areas.”

Graffiti is commonplace in many parts of Maspeth, including industrial sections near the Brooklyn border where artists frequent.

“Councilman Robert Holden sent Fed Cap back to the Andrews Ave Bridge today to paint over the graffiti that reappeared Saturday after they painted over it Thursday,” Stubbs wrote in the group called Ridgewood, Maspeth, Middle Village, Glendale & Beyond.

The Fedcap Group was founded in 1935 as a network to help low-income communities overcome challenges and achieve economic independence.
