THE BRONX - A Bronx company has been hired to remove graffiti at five shopping districts plagued with the unwelcome art.

City-Solve says it will take two months to completely cover the graffiti. They say they will do maintenance checks every month to keep the graffiti away.

"We're going to clean up all of the old graffiti and then we'll be able to hone in on who is doing this," says Bruce Pienkny of City-Solve.

A hotline has also been set up by Councilwoman Annabel Palma to report unwanted graffiti.
