North Philly graffiti wall pays tribute to Connecticut shooting victims

    The graffiti wall at Fifth Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue in North Philadelphia is a neighborhood staple. The art may change, but the wall is always there.

    Following the shootings in Newtown, Conn. that left 26 people, – including 20 children – dead, the wall now pays homage to those victims.


    The photos above show the freshly dedicate wall to Sandy Hook Elementary, where the community is still very much in mourning.
