Long Island City Graffiti Mecca, 5 POINTZ NYC, The Day Before It Was Whitewashed

The graffiti destination in Long Island City called 5 POINTZ has been whitewashed by the owners of the building. Starting Monday afternoon, the owners painted over the colorful murals that once made this a mecca for graffiti artists. The old warehouse and former landmark for graffiti artists would eventually be razed and turned into luxury condos, after years of debate and legal wrangling. These photos were taken last Sunday, the day before the graffiti art was covered with white paint.
