Peek Inside Decrepit Graffiti Haven 5 Pointz Before It's Leveled

New, 5 comments

5 Pointz, the worldwide graffiti sanctuary of yesteryear, still draws tourists despite its whitewashed walls and but faint traces of former glory. The soon-to-be-leveled building's history is an interesting one, from housing a water meter factory to a bootleg Asian porn distributor to artists studios. The urban explorers over at LTVSquad not only wrote up a thorough and interesting recap of the site, but also took one last run through the dilapidated building, complete with pictures, before it is demolished and the site becomes home to (what other than) luxury apartments.

There's a bunch more photos and interesting information on 5 Pointz over at LTV Squad.
