Empire State Building Question

How often does the public areas of the Empire State Building get cleaned? From internet pictures, I was shocked to find there is graffiti written in pen, marker, or scratched-in. It's all over the place, including windows, walls, and stoops. I understand it's New York City, but to deface such a magnificent structure is beyond me. Does the Chrysler building have the same problem, too?

Very interesting ... I see that almost all important buildings or monuments around the world have this problem.

On Acropolis there are visitors marks from a 2000 year span. I think there is the signature of Julius Caesar carved in Propylaea among others.
