"gonna die if I do or die if I don’t COST"

I was walking through Williamsburg on Friday evening when I came across this graffiti which caught my eye because some of the letters were sprayed with a luminous orange color that reflected the setting sun. After a quick Google search I found out that the tag on the wall actually belongs to Adam Cost who was a famous artist in the 80s and 90s. He was arrested and sentenced to a fine and community work in ‘95. It is said that he returned to his art in 2010 so it would be interesting whether that is one of Costs’ graffitis or whether it just happened to be next to his stickers…
