Remember 5 Pointz with Google's New Street Art Database

New York's graffiti mecca 5 Pointz will soon be gone, but it's certainly not forgotten.

Google has just launched the Google Street Art Project, an online database collecting materials from famous street art sites all over the world. Thankfully, there's a whole crop of stories and pictures pulled from 5 Pointz before the Wolkoffs whitewashed the fabled LIC haunt of graffiti artists and enthusiasts. The result is a fairly comprehensive chronicle of the site, almost reminiscent of an oral history in scope and tone.

Or you could just go buy an apartment in a Toll Brothers development, because it's basically the same thing.
