from 5Pointz, the pigeons, and me.
Small good news for 5Points reported in the Commerical Observer yesterday:
Judge Frederick Block extended a restraining order against demolition preparation by another 14 days, through November 12.
Judge Block also ordered a hearing regarding a possible preliminary injunction that would delay demo prep until the lawsuit is settled. That process could take over a year, the LIC Post reported. Ms. Chanes and her clients argue that the Visual Artists Rights Act of 1990–which defends against the destruction or alteration of works installed inextricably in buildings–is perfectly tailored to the 5Pointz aerosol museum.
Somehow I missed that the luxury apartment towers scheduled to replace 5Pointz are meant to be 41- and 47-stories tall! Gawd. Long Island City-cum-Dubai.
