5 pointz, a world of graffitis in New-York

This post is also available in : French

5 pointz , was known to be the Mecqua of graffiti, in Queens, New-York

If you’ve been to New-York in the past, you may have heard about it ?

What’s 5 pointz ?

5 pointz  was a very huge building, covered with tags and graffitis (or whatever name you may give to that art) 🙂

An entire block covered with paintings

Unfortunately, everything has been covered with white paint, destroyed and became a condominium in nov. 2013

Good thing people took photos of the place, at least it stil exists, on the internet.

I have to confess though, that I wasn’t feeling super comfortable going there, by myself, with my expensive camera gear, in such a decor.

It’s always tricky for me, as a woman, to be abroad and explore neighbourhoods when I’m not sure if it’s a safe area or not. (Queens)

But it’s part of the adventure ! 🙂

Colorful, definitely a massive piece of work, from very talented artists.

Yes, that’s a good sum up for that place 🙂

It almost made me want to get some paint spray and graff too ! 🙂

So here are some photos of that place, already gone 🙁

Of course, there are plenty of other places in New-York, where you can find graffitis, and I’ll show you that soon on the blog !

Hi there


Photographer, traveler, and silly knitter

Alone, driving a car for miles and miles, with a good music playlist, my cameras on the passenger seat.

Witnessing the beauty of a landscape, or the raw feeling of real love, emotions and bonds people may have with each other and sometimes crying just because this is just so beautiful...

That's where my best memories come from... and photos too :)

Andalusian in my heart, I've been dancing sevillanas (flamenco) for more than 12 years, I also spent 2 years living in USA. (I'm deeply in love with Oregon and the Pacific Northwest area)

Native French, I do speak English, and Spanish and love learning about cultural differences

Feel free to contact me  for further informations :)
