5pointz

I’ve only seen 5Pointz when looking out the window of the 7 train in Long Island City. So when Bob had to go to for a writing assignment this weekend, I tagged along to satisfy my curiosity about this graffiti mecca.

It’s even more amazing up close! But it’s pretty sad to think that by this time next year, the warehouse will be demolished to make room for condos.

I was pretty excited for my guy when he found a local artist to interview. It was completely spur of the moment, but he managed to pull some pretty great quotes and information from this guy who was painting Phoenix from X-Men on one of the far sides of the building.

If you’re in New York or if you find yourself here before next fall, I encourage you to come here and check out this awesome street art because it might not be here much longer. It’s like going to a museum for free.
