Joseph Holmes captured this great picture of a 5 train recently that makes Gothamist think of the 80's. Broken windows be dammed, when was the last time anyone saw a burner like this on a subway? Joe's got two additional shots up on Flickr as well.

In his comment section, Joe adds a note from Matt Weber:

"A friend of mine who's a graffiti expert passed along this info:
In case you didn't know that was a VIM(OA) car. The Vandals In Motion and Monsters Of Art crews are brother/sister crews from the Copenhagen, Sweden, Holland area and I guess one of them was visiting NYC on vacation."

Additionally, if you like street art, this Sunday, May 8, Jake and Mike Epstein will lead a bike tour of New York street art, as part of the NYC bike month festivities. Meet at 11 a.m. on the north side of Union Square Park with bike or blades- the tour will be about three hours, and hit major graffiti sites in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens.
