5 Pointz

Jackson Avenue at Crane Street, Long Island City, NY
Long Island City, NY 11101
http://5ptz.com/graff/

5 Pointz is a mecca for street artists and may be the biggest argument for those who consider graffiti a form of urban art. The art form is celebrated here on the walls of this graffiti venue as a marvel of color and culture for all to behold by some of its most talented artists. While the much-loved Crane Street Studio on the premises is now closed, the rooftop graffiti display acts as an unmistakable "welcome to Queens" sign for passing subway riders.
