Mayor Bloomberg celebrated his third inauguration last week with an all-city excursion that including a bit of Bronx bombing. After taking part in volunteer projects around the city, Bloomberg joined up with the mostly legal graffiti painting Tats Cru at The Point CDC to put his name up. Armed with a paint brush, the mayor signed off on their canvas, writing “Michael Bloomberg” in cursive letters while his compatriot opted for the slightly longer and bolder tag, “Bx Boro President Ruben Diaz.” Tats Cru photographed the “only in New York” occasion proving that the Mayor can appreciate a handstyle, even a wack one so long as it’s not illicit.
