Religious Graffiti on Vacant Hanover Street Storefront

Religious graffiti is being exhibited in multiple windows on the storefront of the former High Gear Jewelry store at the prominent 204 Hanover Street location.

The graffiti contains Christian crosses, Jewish stars, Hindu Chi and multiple references to the numbers “7” and “777”. According to the infinite wisdom of the Internet, “777” reflects the establishment of the Kingdom of God on the Earth.

The vacant retail shop on the Freedom Trail near the top of Hanover Street has been in dispute regarding a potential restaurant amid abutter objections. The former High Gear jewelry store was open for many years before closing in 2013.
