What can I say… 5 Pointz is awesome. Places like this is what makes me a happy urban hipster mom. For anyone who does not know 5 Pointz, it is a collection of graffiti art nestled among a group of warehouse buildings in Long Island City right next to MoMA PS 1. It is free, cool, and always open as it is simply a collection of worldwide artists who have decorated the outside of these buildings. Why is a graffiti art on Queens Mamas you ask? well what better a way to introduce your budding urban hipster to the world of art but for free on a beautiful day in Queens? Check out these photos and take a visit for yourselves before they turn it into high rise condos.
Where is 5 Pointz: 5PTZ is located on Jackson Ave and Crane St in Long Island City Queens. The bulk of the art is down Crane Street on the right hand side of the street and under the train overpass.
