LONG ISLAND CITY, Queens (PIX11) – A group of youngsters tagging the 5 Pointz building in Queens were arrested.
This comes a day after the graffiti mecca was whitewashed.
A 5 Pointz spokeswoman told DNAinfo the group was taken away after writing “RIP 5 Pointz” on the Long Island City building.
She said 5 Pointz tweeted it wants the building to remain white, so please respect our wish.
The building’s owner wants it torn down to make way for high-rise luxury towers.
