Colorful New 5 Pointz Tribute Street Art Appears in Long Island City

Some colorful new murals have emerged on the side of the 3-story building at 43-01 21st Street that appears to be an homage to the demolished 5 Pointz street art collection.

Street art isn’t dead in Long Island City just yet. In fact, it’s still very much alive. […] It appears to be an homage to 5 Pointz, which was demolished earlier in the year to make way for rental towers.1 5 Pointz may be gone now, but Court Square’s gritty art scene remains, as seen in the photos below.
