Title: ZEPHYR Works His Way Up to the One Tunnel
Graffiti Writer 1: ZEPHYR
Train Line 1: 1 Train Line
Train Yard, Layup or Station 1: The One Tunnel
Train Yard, Layup or Station 2: 242nd Street Yard
Memory: The first time I went into the yard I was too scared for words. I was a tiny kid, and the way the trains laid up in that yard (the #1 yard at 242nd Street) put the panels very high. I couldn't even climb into the cars without huge problems. Anyway, needless to say, my first trip to the yard was pretty stupid. I was a 14-year-old panic button, wet behind the ears. I was way too small, and completely overwhelmed by the noise and all the trains.
I loved tagging insides, but I quickly determined that yards were scary and sucked. So I went back to doing my little motion tags for about the next 2 years. But I have to say, for motion tagging, I had it pretty good because my school was at the last stop on the line. That was '75 and '76, before I wrote Zephyr. I was writing "Kane" and some other stupid names. Then in 1977 Bil-Rock turned me onto the #1 tunnel at 137th street. By then I was two years older, I had homies to roll with and I was a little taller, which was a big help.
