5 POINTZ 2
I returned to 5 Pointz again today, this time without my lovely girlfriend, Jillian. She did however send me this photo she took on Saturday.
I wanted to see 5 Pointz without the weekend crowds and in the light of a different hour.
I have stopped by this side of the building a number of times. This time I wanted to see more.
I cut through the parking lot in back and all I can say is, damn!!! I had been missing out on a lot.
The work in the courtyard and up and down the street is phenomenal.
Here’s a tribute to Jimi Hendrix below. And I would like to express my sadness at the passing of the great Lou Reed.
The elevated subway rattles overhead adding to the urban ambiance of this place.
Here you can see the subway passing in the background and the giant Citi building beyond that.
This piece below is tremendous!
Meet Baxter the cat as he checks out one of Fumero’s pieces.
I was talking to this dude Fume for a bit about the fate of the building. You can barely see Fume in the photo below sitting in the womb of the giant figure. He didn’t seem to know much more than what I had read about, but he did introduce me to Baxter the cat.
This one’s for my Uncle Fritz. He’s a Notre Dame man.
I want to go back for more before it’s gone! Hopefully 5 Pointz will stick around for a while!
