Impressions day #16: 5Pointz

... trainspotting is one of my new favorites: The elevated 7 Flushing Subway led us to this Street Art Mecca in Long Island City; 5 Pointz Aerosol Arts Centerwhere artists from around the globe paint colorful pieces on the walls of a 200,000-square-foot / 19,000 m2 factory building. 

Not a museum nor a gallery - 5 Pointz is a living collage of graffiti art covering a converted warehouse full of artist studios. 


  1. Love that place, it´s featured in a hip hop documentary i have on tape, would love to go there some time.


  2. these streetart pics are great...there are so many hidden talents in big cities.


  3. @Burcu: I know - it's like treasure hunting! Love it!
    @Morten: You should go there some time! There's really cheap tickets to NYC from Oslo these days - so you should even make that some time soon ;)
