5Pointz, the graffiti mecca in Long Island City, will be torn down and replaced by two high rise buildings. Glad I got a look at it before it's gone forever. There's an attempt to preserve the buildings by declaring them NYC landmarks (I signed the petition), but I don't think it will get approved in time. I can't help but compare this situation to the destruction of Old Penn Station. I don't think we'll realize what we've lost 'til it's gone.
