Art: 5 Pointz – Long Island City


5 Pointz, popularly known as NYC’s graffiti mecca, may be coming to a close. For years, 5 Pointz has served as the epicenter of the graffiti scene and has provided aerosol artists an outlet to “legally” express themselves. However, developer/landowner, David Wolkoff, plans to convert the towers into residential buildings.

For more information on the closing and redevelopment, here’s a video. To book a tour, click ish.
