I loved Prince but sure as hell don't want one of those ugly tags on my building.

I saw a bench in East River Park that was spray painted purple. It looked like crap. Honestly people, of you want to honor Prince find a better way to do it than through vandalism and polluting the environment with toxic fumes from spray paint.
