5 Pointz NYC (July 8, 2012)

5 Pointz in Long Island City is known as "The Institute of Higher Burnin'" or the "5Pointz Aerosol Art Center." Either way, it's simply an amazing, vibrant graffiti / street art showcase. Artists from all over the world leave their mark at 5Points (We watched an artist from Japan start a piece on the green blank space shown below). Definitely go check this out. You could spend a day staring at these outrageous tags and murals. And they give tours. (Note: The owner of this complex, Jerry Wolkoff, recently announced plans to  redevelop the property to build high-rise residential towers.) So go see this while you can!              CLICK TO ENLARGE
