Watch The Months-Long Demolition Of 5 Pointz In A One-Minute Timelapse

January 8, 2015 | Aymann Ismail

Over the past several months, ANIMAL has been documenting the demolition of 5 Pointz, a legendary building in Queens which served as an aerosol playground for spray paint-wielding artists since 1993. The property will eventually be developed into a condo complex, but first the site had to be fully cleared. So we bribed a nearby resident to allow us to set up a time-lapse camera in his home from September to December, and he agreed. Check out the methodological destruction in the video above.
