Urban Design Observations: Abandoned Storefront Graffiti Etiquette

On a commercially volatile strip of Lafayette Street, another store has gone out of business, probably pushed out by rising rents.

I’ve noticed that within days of a store closing down, kids will come through at night and tag the place up, including on the glass.

But right next door is a store that remains in business, and the taggers have spared it. I suppose they either have some kind of code, or fear getting caught for vandalizing a going concern.
