    We're still not over the fact that this graffiti art destination has been painted over and will be torn down to make room for new high rise condos. It certainly will be missed!

    The must go to place if in LIC SO MUCH beauty, #graffiti #wallart. Go before the powers that have $$ tear it down to build more overpriced apts we don't need or can afford

    When heading over there, ride the 7 train from Manhattan and stay glued to the North windows of the train. You'll catch a glimpse of a huge Notorious B.I.G. mural that you can't see from the street.

    There is always new art to see here. One trip is definitely not enough! And with Space Womb Gallery next door and PS1 across the street, this is a great art day out!

    If you're out biking, this place is definitely worth a ride over the Queensboro bridge (or the Pulaski, depending on where you're coming from). Scope the tags. Sneak onto the roof if you can.

    Sidetour has a rather excellent tour with Meres at 5pointz which takes you to areas usually closed to public. It's $35 but well worth it

    Definitely worth an Uber ride out to LIC to check out 5 Pointz. We recommend a SideTour to get some history on the murals and graffiti.

    This is the largest legal aerosol exhibit in the US, possibly the world. It was founded in '93 as a haven for aerosol artists to hone and showcase their craft. See more: Read more

    Beautiful graffiti art space. Many days you can see artists working on new pieces while you're there. Go see it before it's taken down!

    So cool to see artists at work. Spent a lot of time talking to Share37 and looking through his scrapbooks of photos chronicling his life as a graffiti artist. A must see, truly unique New York place.

    This place is a living collage of graffiti art. A must see. It's a converted warehouse full of artist studios. Legend and noob writers alike cover the building's façade at the discretion of the owner.

    5Pointz is amazing. Visit before it's gone. Bring an extra camera battery because there is so much to snap. Have fun!

    This warehouse is more about the art than the architecture of the building...truly represents the cultural identity of the neighborhood

    It is a sad day: I ve been here a couple of times but today I saw all graffittis covered in white paint. What the owner did is similar to vandalizing all paintings in MoMA. Sad.
