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 🙁
How do you like it ?
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 !
