The Gum Wall

They scrapped all the gum off a couple years ago, but don't let that stop you. It is filled back up!! Go to the main sign with the clock. And to the left is an alley way that you go down and the Gum Wall is to the left.

Gum Wall.

The Gum Wall

It's still there, it still smells of minty bubblegum, people still push their gum onto other wads of gum.

The Gum Wall

As of 11/10/15 they will be cleaning all the gum off the wall for the first time in 20 years.

The Gum Wall.

The Gum Wall

Visited several times. The trend now is for people to mash their business cards with their gum onto the wall like it's a community bulletin board at a Panera Bread. Hot tip: No one wants to see the only disposable piece of paper that was in your pocket the day you strolled through a wall off gum. Gum. Wall. You put gum on the wall. That's it.
