"As you grow older, your perspective changes. I no longer think in terms of the next ten, or twenty years. I think in terms of the next three years."
“So what do you want to accomplish over the next three years?”

Long Island City Says Goodbye to 5 Pointz
To view more photos and videos of 5 Pointz both before and after the whitewashing, be sure to visit the 5 Pointz location page.
For over 20 years, the 5 Pointz building in Long Island City, Queens, has been a hub for street artists from around the world to showcase their work. Many Instagrammers in New York have visited 5 Pointz to document the dynamic, vibrant graffiti on its exterior.
The building is privately owned by Long Island developer Jerry Wolkoff who has plans to raze 5 Pointz at the end of this year. Early Tuesday morning, the structure’s artwork was quietly painted over with white paint. In the wake of this news, locals and visitors alike are documenting the changes that herald the building’s final days.
The demolition of the 5Pointz graffiti mecca has reportedly begun: the building was in the process of being white-washed. I was lucky to take a tour a few months ago and was hoping to see it again in the winter, but the deconstruction apparently couldn’t wait.
