A sin to graffiti ancient wall

Some knucklehead graffitist tagged the historic, leaning brick wall at St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral at Prince and Mulberry Sts. with a yellow scrawl a couple of weeks ago. It’s not the first time the wall has been hit by graffiti, a cathedral staffer said, adding that special chemicals are required to clean it off without damaging the wall.
