Post by: Hambone on July 20, 2011, 07:53:29 AM
After Altown 1 got shut down thanks to some over-zealous graffitti artists the comeback is finally here ALtown 2. While just about anyone who is anyone travelling across the country will drive through memphis on way to another much nicer destination few stop.  Check out the DIY, or better yet come skate it, or even better yet DONATE!

Stoked to see Al Town is back in action. Is that blue thing the original quarter or was that torn down?

Also stoked to see Trife Street on the forum.

P.S. I'm gonna steal your pictures 'cause that's what I do...

Yeah NOT the original Quarterpipe the other spot got shut down and they ripped a significant amount of the stuff out.  This is a new spot about 1/2 a mile away and already has more potential check it out on trifestreet.blogspot.com

glad you guys found a new spot. keep buff paint on hand, and buff stuff instantly. to the "powers that be," graff=gangs and drugs, and that's what will get you shut down with a quickness.

or, for raw concrete that's been tagged....  make friends with mister mostenbocker. this stuff kills it. as long as you get it early, you just spray it on, let it sit for a minute or two, and the paint will come off with water and a stiff brush. i wanna get marginal a mostenbocker sponsorship....

Cool to see you guys keeping it going. I get to Nashville about once a year, if I have time to take a road trip next time I'll head over to Al Town

Plus I need to go to Trife Street (http://trifestreet.blogspot.com/?zx=27e2895b6444696d) more often.
