ICYMI Moment of the Day: The 5 Pointz Has Been Whitewashed
"The greatest art murder in history." - MERES ONE
That’s one way to explain what happened to Long Island’s infamous piece of art. The legendary graffiti landmark, 5 Pointz, was poorly whitewashed Monday night. Many people out in Long Island woke up to see the once iconic piece of art completely irraticated as it was stripped in preparation for a pair of luxury high-rise buildings.
A place that once brought together people from all points of the world in celebration of one art movement is now a place to mourn the biggest scar on graffiti.
Rest in pieces 5 Pointz.
