NYC. Queens. 5Pointz is gone.

Last night 80% of the famous graffiti mecca “5 Pointz” in Queens were painted white, the first step to turn the old warehouse into luxury condos. A sad day for graffiti lovers all over the world and especially those, who fought for it’s upkeep within the last years.

5pointz has been a must on my NY iternary whenever I visited and I am so grateful that I got the chance to see this one-of-a-kind work of art.
