It's sad that this is no longer around. I've been several times over a few years and each time was better then the next because the artwork was constantly changing.

Unfortunately in 2014 this site was destroyed by a greedy developer. So much for urban art. Hopefully someone will resurrect another site in the City to showcase Graffiti artists work. We have only photos to remind us of this landmark. It wasn't old enough to qualify for landmark status.

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 was only a matter of time. It was great while it lasted but it looks... 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 at a blank canvas, don't bother

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.

This was an amazing thing to see, but when artists tried to take legal action to preserve the building holding their street art, the owner whitewashed it overnight to sabotage the case. Now, I'm not saying they had a case, but it definitely closed the conversation. Not much here to see now, unfortunately.

Unfortunately, this lovely area, 5 Ptz, was recently white washed in preparation for its destruction to make way for more high rises. Anyone who attempts to add more graffiti is said to be arrested. This was one of the most creative, colorful and artistic areas of NYC and it is sad that is no longer around. Boo to you, NYC.
