Travel Theme: Secret Places

Ailsa’s – Where’s my backpack? – Travel Theme of the week is Secret Places.

One of my favorite places in the five boroughs is 5Pointz.  It is a worldwide graffiti mecca that has been in existence since 1993, I believe.  The work on display there is incredible. The building covers a full city block near PS1 and just off the 7 train line. However, if you want to see it you may need to move fast. Currently this 8th wonder of the world is scheduled for demolition – Landmark set to be demolished – in 2013 in favor of yet more upscale condos …just what New York is begging for…

If you live in NYC, please contact any and all of your local politicians to see if they will commit to help save 5Pointz!
