A New York judge awarded $6.7 million to graffiti artists who sued after their work was destroyed on buildings torn down to make room for luxury condos. The site in Long Island City, Queens, site known as 5Pointz, was the backdrop for movies and music videos, including Joss Stone’s video for Tell Me ’Bout It in 2006. SEE PICS
