This weekend I visited 5 POINTZ to take some photos before the building is razed in the near future.
Owned by a private developer, the building has been used by graffiti artists as a curated public exhibition space. Recently, the developer released plans to convert the site into a large residential tower. Community members and artists fought to preserve the site but the owner’s plan has been approved by the city council. When the structure will be torn down has yet to be known, so if you want to pay a last visit you’d better do it soon!
Curbed NY has a good amount of 5 Pointz coverage for those who are not familiar with the story.
