Wow! i really like the memorial murals, they're really unique!


I live on Watson, great pictures. One thing though, Watson is not in Bronx River. This is the Soundview Section of the Bronx. Bronx River is North of Westchester Avenue. Great shots though, I walk by them almost everyday. It's ashame a lot of good murals in the area are being painted over.


I was working in the area the other day and saw these awesome memorials such as Headache Nelson. The artist or artists should be recognized for their beautiful work. How did Headache die??

I think headaches real name was nelson torres if I'm not mistaken. I'm from the Bronx, but I've been living in Toronto for the past six years. I recently visted the Bronx in 2003 and some people in my crew told me that he got stabbed. If that is nelson torres, then that's a dude that I went to school with up until maybe eith grade. R.I.P.

One more thing, I think the guy in the first picture was a dude named Lance. If that is Lance then my brother older brother went to school with him. R.I.P. Watson all day!!!!

Yes, That was indeed Nelson Torres and Yes He was Very Popular. It's amazing to see these Murals recognized here.

Nelson was a Good Person. Although short tempered, He always looked out for His Family and Friends. He was Brave and Feared No One. That's the kind of person You admired in the Block you know?

He earned the name "HEADACHE" with his Playfighting behavior. He used to drive people crazy with that shit. Hence, He was a "HEADACHE".

But he was well Loved and Respected all the Same. As mentioned before, He always helped those who needed it...and without going into detail, it was sadly the same thing that took Him away from us.

Nel, not one day passes without You in mind. After all these years, I still can't believe it. I pray for the day when We will see each other again. We will always Miss You and You will Never be Forgotten.

Love Always...Your cousin, Gil.

To the Author: Thank You for Posting these Pics'. I have not been at that area in a very long time so it's nice to see His Murals again.
