5 Pointz Wire

New, 7 comments

After wrapping the once-graffiti-covered, now-whitewashed 5 Pointz with a banner that reads "Gentrification in Progress," street artist Gilf! has this to say about the act, which was a response to owner David Wolkoff's plans to demolish and replace the structure with condos: "There are many of us that believe things can be done differently," said Gilf!, "that we don't have to destroy years and years of New York culture to put up another soulless glass structure." Wolkoff, for what it's worth, didn't really mind the addition: "Next time she can do it during the day. I have no problem, as long as she doesn't sue me." [NYDN; previously]
