The demolition of 5Pointz has begun, slowly but surely.

A wooden fence was placed around the back of the graffiti mecca and demolition trucks began picking away at the old warehouse.

Looking at the building from Jackson Avenue, it doesn’t look like much has changed, but as the three-week demolition process moves forward, passersby can expect to see less and less of the building that was once covered with aerosol paintings by street artists from around the world.

David Wolkoff, co-owner of the property, said once demolition is completed, development of the land will be swift.

Welcome to the discussion.
