Jimmy says traveling the streets of New York City is like visiting a museum. In his story, Jimmy asks listeners to look more closely at graffiti and think about where to draw the line between art and vandalism.

Jimmy Belfon is 15 years old, goes to high school in East Harlem and used to have an iguana named Igzilla (they're illegal in New York City now). His report is on the Graffiti Hall of Fame, which covers the walls of his school playground.
