NYC Taught Me About Five Pointz

By the end of the year 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.

  2. I was just here a week ago! Thanks for featuring 5 Pointz; I can't believe it's going to be destroyed. Awful :\

  3. I don't know why but Francesco and I didn't make it out to see 5 Pointz when we were in NYC. Wish we had.

  5. I think it's so sad, and incredibly lame, that more chrome will replace this remarkable artwork. I live closeby, and need to go bow my head before it's just another overpriced condo. If there's another petition floating around, I definitely want my signature on it. The grittiness of New York City is highly unappreciated, and it's what gives the city its character.
