For over 20 years, the 5 Pointz building in Long Island City, Queens, has been a hub for street artists from around the world to showcase their work. Many Instagrammers in New York have visited 5 Pointz to document the dynamic, vibrant graffiti on its exterior.
The building is privately owned by Long Island developer Jerry Wolkoff who has plans to raze 5 Pointz at the end of this year.

In the wake of this news, locals and visitors alike are documenting the changes that herald the building’s final days.
