Review of 5Ptz - CLOSED

Reviewed 24 April 2014

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.

Went at Christmas time and it's all painted over. Was very disappointed we didn't get to see it......

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.
