I have always been a big fan of the last vestiges of the old days of New York..and what I can remember from my childhood as I grew up here. As time went on..a lot of these places were torn down to make way more these modern eyesores...that way the city can let more people move in, increase rents..and ruin the old fashioned charm that many neighborhoods once had.

I just found out that the city approved another development plan in Long Island City, Queens to happen. Because of this, the iconic 5 Pointz building is going to be torn down to allow for 2 huge residential buildings to be built. Long Island City was once a nice, quiet neighborhood where I live..but now there are more and more huge and ugly residential buildings being built there.

For those of you who don't know what 5 Pointz is..the building is a nice factory from the good old industrial days. Later on, 5 Pointz became a graffiti haven for artists from all over the world, and it's the only building in New York City where graffiti can be legally done. On top of that..you can contact the people that run 5 Pointz in order to do film and photo runs inside the building. What I love is when you walk around 5 points..you can see messages from graffiti artists from all over the world.

Here is a picture that I took in which you can see part of 5 Pointz:


And here is the link to the article that broke my heart:
