Crack Is Still Wack

May 18, 2009

It’s been 23 years since Keith Haring painted his Crack is Wack mural on a handball court in Harlem. The crack epidemic of the 80s may be officially over, but the mural is iconic, making its point to motorists on the FDR Drive and to kids at the East 127th Street playground where it’s located.

That playground is now actually called Crack is Wack Playground. Yep, the Parks Department renamed it. Here’s more info on Haring and the Crack is Wack playground.
