Artist INSA brings graffiti to life
It appears that the other shoe has finally dropped in regards to the future of 5pointz in Queens. The Long Island City graffiti mecca has been in operation since the early 90s, when members of the 5points Arts Collective transformed the manufacturing plant into the largest open-air aerosol gallery in NYC. After rumors began surfacing in recent years about the landmark’s uncertain future, it’s fate now appears to be sealed. The building will be demolished in September of 2013 to make way for the two 40+ story high-rise condo developments.
