Returning to an older project (almost finished!), here is the south outside wall of the old tire factory on Herman Street. This wall is almost entirely elaborate tags. Up on the second floor, there’s a tag for “UTL Krew.” The #utlcrew tag on Instagram reveals UTL to be a group of Atlanta artists, who use the Mibs and Seimr tags seen at the west end of the building. It would seem too they are responsible for Unsafe at any speed. At the far east of the wall, a UH tag appears, so locals were also involved in this working this wall. It’s somewhat overgrown, no doubt worse in the summer, but the tracks at least mean you don’t have to fight your way through vegetation. See Part 1 for more information on this site, and see the link for Part 1 on the map.

Located at the north end of the 800 block of 19th Street N., at the corner of Herman Street. It’s impossible to miss. Street parking is very haphazard. There is a lot of to see here, and also a lot of overgrown weeds (depending on the time of year) so wear the right shoes!
