Just blocks from P.S. 1 is 5 Pointz, the Institute of Higher Burnin'. Not a museum or gallery, 5 Pointz is a living collage of graffiti art covering a converted warehouse full of artist studios. The art of famous and novice graffiti artists covers the building's facade, all done with the encouragement of the building's owner. It's a well-known sight from the elevated 7 subway, which runs behind 5 Pointz.


Admire the art all around the outside, or head upstairs to the roof for more graffiti and great views of LIC and Manhattan.
