THE BRONX - Pelham Bay residents are fighting back against a growing graffiti problem in their neighborhood. Sen. Jeffrey Klein (D-34th District) today kicked off the graffiti removal program in Pelham Bay.

Graffiti will be washed away and painted over in the area starting this weekend, and the program will run for about two years.Residents who want to report graffiti to be removed are asked to call Klein's office at 718-822-2049.
