Travelogue: 5 Pointz

July 2010

One of my favorite experience from my 10 days in New York was seeing 5 Pointz. It’s a photographer’s dream and I’m so glad I ventured over to Queens to see this incredible sight.

From Wikipedia:
5 Pointz is an outdoor art exhibit space in Long Island City, New York, considered to be the world’s premiere “graffiti Mecca,” where aerosol artists from around the globe paint colorful pieces on the walls of a 200,000-square-foot factory building. The complex owned by Long Island developer Gerald Wolkoff houses the Crane Street Studios in which 200 artists pay below market rents for studio space.
