I know there are a few people on here who are into graff so I thought you might find this interesting. This place is about 10 mins away from my apt. I have been here twice a few years ago and wanted to see how it was looking nowadays since they paint over some stuff and let new artists display their work. The name of the place is 5 Pointz. It looks like a rundown warehouse but its an artist gallery on the inside (i didnt go in). The guy who runs the building allows artists to come and put up their work. But its not unorganized. You have to make an appointment, get a permit etc, etc. Its located in Long Island City Queens. If you ever visiting NYC you should check it out. its the first subway stop out of Manhattan. And if you visit this place keep you markers in your pocket.
These are a few pics i took. Here is the website www.5ptz.com where there are obviously more/better pics. And more info.
