The Graffiti Ruins of Eureka

 

 

Behind the Bayshore Mall, Beauty and Tagging is in the Eye of the Beholder

The concrete ruins behind the Bayshore Mall are a canvass of sorts for artists.  They paint and spray and tag the concrete in a variety of forms for an unknown audience.

The area has long been known for it’s homeless encampments, supposed Satanic rituals, and being a junkie haven over the past three decades.  It’s a No-Man’s land, a spooky and apocalyptic place, especially come night time after the sun sets.

We found this 7-minute video posted today giving a tour of the place.  The description only read:

Somewhere in Humboldt County, California, on the bay in the city of Eureka, lies this hidden derelict of a graffiti collection.  Crazy walk to, get to, and crazies along the way – the good homeless kind!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Skippy, I believe you are at the beginning of a much bigger story. Did your editor only want the graffiti angle? If so, how disappointing. The Times Standard and the North Coast Journal (to a point) lack the courage to dig into the story. There was one time journalist and publishers would work for the public to give them the truth. Are those days long over?

    I think you find the Satanism angle hits very close to home. Keep digging and run this as a series.

    All the best
