5Pointz Painted White

Reblog from queens.brownstoner.com

Yesterday morning, the 5Pointz Twitter feed reported the latest crazy news in the crazy saga of 5Pointz. The building owners Jerry and David Wolkoff painted the building white with police protection. Another Tweet notes that the 5Pointz artists almost got arrested.

The white-out comes after a judge denied the artists a permanent injunction to stop demolition. In response, the artists held a rally this weekend. They planned to form a human chain around the building come demolition day, which is expected before the end of the year.
