Saddening Time Lapse of the Four-Month Demolition of 5 Pointz

As we collectively mourn the loss of one of the City’s greatest collections of street art in order to fit yet another condo high-rise, perhaps seeing a time lapse of 5 Pointz dismantled will help us get closure. Our friends over at ANIMAL got a Long Island City resident with a view of the 5 Pointz site to setup a camera from September through December, then compiled the resulting photographs into a great time lapse of it’s deconstruction.
