Maybe I'm late to this party...

Recommended Posts

But did anyone else know about this:

 

Article on Five Points being redeveloped.

 

The New York graffiti mecca in Queens known as “Five Pointz” will be be replaced with high rises and a luxury shopping mall, according to the Huffington Post.

 

Owner Jerry Wolkoff has allowed street artists to use the space rent-free since 1993, but now the former warehouse in Long Island City will be redeveloped and turned into two residential buildings towering up to 40 stories high. Marlon Bishop of WNYC reported that the $350 million dollar project will include shops and a supermarket, and a wall for graffiti artists to continue practicing their craft.

 

It’s a sad day for New York’s street artists because graffiti and hip-hop fans from around the world regularly visit the space. Members of the Five Pointz community have begun to circulate a petition seeking landmark status for the building (the name Five Pointz refers to the coming together of the five New York boroughs)...

 

 

That's a damn shame.

Not for nothing, the dude who owns the building allowed people to paint there for years and gave nigga's offices and studio space for free. You can't get down on him for selling off his property. It's prime space in NYC. I think he went well above and beyond what anyone would have and should be applauded

 

No one should be trying to organize a petition to cock block this dude from getting paid for his rightfully owned property.

 

That's pretty much how I feel about it, but still sad.

^^^This, dude hooked it up pretty well for NYC.

I just hope it's still standing by March 1st when it's officially open for painting.

Bet that place gets hit hard once it's up. You know some retard will do a fire extinguisher across the front in spite.

 

Whatever, I don't blame him for selling at all. Monster Z has it right
