Global Now: Abstract

Headline:  5 Pointz to Demolished by September 2013

Date:  November 5, 2012


Abstract: As the time grows closer to the closure of this historical site referred to as the “Mecca of Graffiti,” people still have hope that it can still be saved from the plans to demolish and build condos in its place. I have been to 5 Pointz and it is something that pictures and videos cannot show. Walking around this building, viewing all of the “urban art” on its walls and plus being in NYC (where Hip Hop predominately originated) is an experience taken in by physically being there to view it. For more information on 5 Pointz visit their website or watch this short documentary video.
