1. The iconic graffiti exhibit’s official Twitter account tweeted out Tuesday morning that most of the art had been painted over with NYPD consent last night.
5 pointz is gone, painted white overnight by the owner ..with police protection
I repeat 5 pointz is gone ..painted white over night we almost got arrested
3. The Queens, N.Y., warehouse, which previously operated as a legal graffiti space, had 80% of its walls covered in white paint. Some of the tags painted over were over two decades old.
So sad to see graffiti mecca #5Pointz painted white to prep for luxury condos. Here it is 6 months ago - and today.
Nothing to see folks. At 5 Pointz one tourist came to see the art, went home disappointed “breaks my heart.”
The End of an era… RIP 5Pointz @5PointzNYC #streetart
