"Queens’ graffiti mecca is no more. The extensive aerosol art on 5Pointz — an internationally renowned haven for urban artists — was quietly painted white early Tuesday morning." (Nov 19, 2013).

Wow, the ex-graffiti headquarters of New York City!

Has anyone sneaked back to redecorate in the dead of night? It must be one hell of a temptation now that it's painted white, like a red rag to a bull! :)

just as well you recorded it for posterity Boris, even if it has a second lease-of-life, the illustrations will be completely different. - D.

Just the other day I had an urge to check out what's happening there now - those guys are not the kind, that would just "go gentle into that good night"... I'll keep you posted, David :)
