Save 5 Pointz
5 Pointz, in Long Island City, Queens, once called the graffiti mecca of the world, has been destroyed overnight. This footage was shot at a rally on November 16 during a last attempt to save the iconic building. Jonathan Cohen (Meres One) and Angel del Villar kicked off the event by sharing their experiences of old new york. Unfortunately I was unable to identify some of the speakers.
Update: Whitewashing which started on Tuesday will continue this weekend.
I hope that the creativity of 5 Pointz lives on and that we can someday use it to rebuild.
