If you ride the 7 train on your daily commute, don’t look down. Last night while we were sleeping soundly, the owners of 5 Pointz, guarded by NYPD, took to painting over the graffiti mecca that’s been fighting for it’s life for over a year. We’ve been following the struggle over the fate of the building for some time now, and were optimistic that something could be worked out. Looking at these photos hurt.

Conscious of the rich cultural history that has been wiped not only from NYC but the world, it’s with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to 5 Pointz. </3
