5 Pointz represents the living embodiment of the global Hip Hop culture and has an intangible value in this world and physical significance to the City of New York. Through its connection with graffiti, which is one of Hip Hop’s 5 original elements 5 Pointz has a living historical and cultural value, serving as a global beacon of unity, hope and creativity and should be preserved as a NYC landmark.
Global Block believes that 5 Pointz represents the following 4 criterion for preservation status:
- Represents a masterpiece of human creative genius and the rich tradition of New York City Arts.
- Represents an important interchange of human values, over a span of time within NYC dedicated monumental arts and landscape design;
- Bears a unique and exceptional testimony to a cultural tradition which is living or which has disappeared;
- Is directly and tangibly associated with living traditions, ideas, and beliefs, with artistic and literary works of outstanding universal significance.
