Checking Out 5 Points

POST #    1237

Conveniently located across the street from P.S. 1 is 5 Points, a group of buildings that is a canvas of sorts for graffiti artists. Anyone can paint there with a permit. It's impossible to take pictures of all the artwork at 5 Points, so I just took a few. Not necessarily the most representative, but just stuff that I thought was fun.

Seeing "Queens" now makes me think "Queens is in the house represent, represent, A Tribe Called Quest represent, represent." Thats just me though.

Also, I watched Style Wars over the weekend, which is a 1983 documentary about graffiti in the NYC Subway system. Quite excellent, if you haven't seen it, check it out.

5 Pointz, boyz!!

I love that the area near the stairs (naturally) is sort of a cloud of graffiti. The wider exterior shots are great that way.
