5Pointz Landlord Claims He Owns The Name Of The Graffiti 'Temple' He Destroyed

Nearly a year ago today, a New York City institution disappeared in the weirdest of ways. Overnight, landlord Jerry Wolkoff whitewashed the walls of the graffiti-smothered property once known as 5Pointz, where artists of all ages met and worked for more than a decade.


The abrupt erasure of one of the city’s most distinctive landmarks -- a regular stop on guided tours for Europeans seeking the “real” New York -- made national headlines, most of them unflattering for Wolkoff. If he was enemy number one then, he’s below zero today: a new report reveals that the beleaguered landlord is trying to trademark the name “5Pointz,” for the 40-plus story condo buildings he plans to build where the tagged walls once stood.

The act strikes some as hypocritical, given that Wolkoff orchestrated the end of the 5Pointz era. He reportedly submitted the trademark bid in March to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. It was refused this summer (the name was deemed too close to FivePoint Communities, a real estate development in California), but Wolkoff’s company, G&M Realty, is still within its six-month window to respond to the decision. Wolkoff did not return a request for comment by HuffPost.

From Vandals to Artists: Time Rouses More Appreciation for Graffiti

A few minutes before sunrise on Monday, a train left the subway yard in Corona, Queens, where most cars on the No. 7 line spend the night in slumber.

This one appeared to have rolled out of the distant past.

From top to bottom, inside and out, seats, windows and walls, the train was encased in layers of vinyl advertising sheets. What once had been standard-issue subway cars now had been transformed to look like the interior of a diner.

“It is the first ever total train takeover in M.T.A. history,” said Carina Sayles, a spokeswoman for the company that bought the ads.

Good try, but not quite.
