Graffiti Removed from Riverwalk Trees - Will Boat Prow Dock Be Next?

As can be seen from the picture below taken yesterday by Roosevelt Island 360, the graffiti defacing trees on Southtown's Riverwalk lawn has been cleaned up and removed. According to RIOC President Steve Shane:

We arranged for management in Southtown to do it.
Good job by RIOC and Riverwalk management in cleaning up the trees so quickly.

As to the graffiti on the boat dock prow and a suggestion to hire local kids to clean up Roosevelt Island graffiti, a philosophical Mr. Shane reports:
We do hire local kids.
Clean up of prow only creates tabula rasa. We will do it, again.
