Our Last Look At Queens Graffiti Mecca 5Pointz Was From A Lexus
We were lucky to get one last look at the New York City landmark before it was wiped clean last night.
Those bastards! Like something out of a bad ’80s movie, a crew of painters worked overnight to paint over 5Pointz, a well-known mecca for graffiti artists from around the world located in Long Island City, Queens. Turns out the building’s owner wants to sell the landmark to a developer in order to convert the space into 1,000 new luxury apartments. This is really shitty news for lovers of street art everywhere, especially because 5Pointz was fresh in our minds after taking the new Lexus IS 350 F Sport there for a video shoot a couple of weeks ago. Check it out and enjoy the art, both automotive and spray-painted…
