5Ptz has been demolished. It was demolished to make way for an apartment building. The owner of the property claims he will allow some area of the new building to be tagged.

Passed by here many a time in the past. Having grown up in the city, always amazed how such incredible pieces can come out of spray cans. Read about the owner of the property looking to develop the land a while back and knew it...More

This was a very cool street art exhibit on a building the artists didn't own. I'm not in favor of vandalism in the name of art. Evidently the building owner didn't favor it either. Under police protection the building was whitewashed. Unless you enjoy staring...More

Owners should have left the graffiti up untill demolition. Not cool that they painted over all the great art. Im from ny born and raised this place was the last place left that reflects the ny of the yesteryear.
