Just came from 5 Pointz in LIC queens. Today and tomorrow is the International Urban Arts Festival at 5Pointz. Graffiti artists, break dancers, music and events at the world famous 5 Pointz studios.
The rumor was that 5 Pointz and the Crane artist studios located in the building were thrown out because the entire building was condemned. That is apparantly not true. Yes the Crane artist studios are out but 5Pointz is alive and well and still functioning as a focal point of Street Art. MereOne, the CEO of 5Pointz, told me that he wants to create a Graffiti Museum on the site. I hope that can be achieved soon.
