I really love Five Pointz and have gone to their exhibitions- when you enter those spaces it makes you feel like in some other world. You find some artists living in their studios… and while it feels kind of cool to living and breating your art… it’s also scary to live in a building that appears to be falling a part all the time!
I am very sadden that it will be replaced by new developments… But at the same time, I always look at some of those areas as really needing some remodeling. Some parts around there are very industrial and isolated… except for the train. I think a visit to such a place is due before it gets destroyed! It will make very cool photography projects.
