A big development in the graffiti scene of the time was to hit subways as a way to communicate with other artists. The Redbird subway lines (long gone now but not forgotten by anyone who rode the IRT line in the 80s, which, do people even know what the IRT is anymore???) were so thoroughly covered in graffiti, that the MTA had no choice but to introduce new subway cars. Of course, for the "super crews" of the time, all that meant was they had new, fresh canvases to work on.
