Mourning.


I was greatly saddened to read that the battle to save 5 Pointz was lost early this morning. The art space was covered in white paint throughout the night and only remnants of the graffiti are now visible. A peaceful candlelight vigil will be held for 5 Pointz tonight at 5 pm for people to say goodbye to this amazing Queens landmark. 

I will forever cherish my visits to 5 Pointz and the pictures I have from them. These photos were taken during my final visit to the space in late October. The colors, energy, and pieces were phenomenal that day and I am so glad Brian and I took the time to walk around and admire them all. 
New York City will be mourning the loss of 5 Pointz for a very long time.
