A name was written using a white marker on the column supporting the pedestrian bridge over the train tracks located by the Amtrak Station. The name appeared to be something "sapho'i" and something "phoa".

More writing, this time in purple, white and black inks. Part of the paint on this part of the support column had been chipped off. We leave as an exercise for you the task of deciphering this particular patch of graffiti.

Part of this column had been painted over in the past to erase graffiti. Clearly a new layer of graffiti had been applied over time. The earlier layer read, "Bry Kays" while a later layer read "Bry Remi" —perhaps a two timing cad?
