Those who would like to save the graffiti-covered building in Queens known as 5pointz are running out of options. A federal judge on Tuesday decided he had no standing to issue a permanent injunction halting the building's demolition, after an earlier ruling temporarily halted it. The judge, Frederick Block, said there was nothing he could do to prevent the building's owners from razing it and building luxury condo towers, as they had all their permits in place. But hey, condo towers, you don't see those every day!
