Graffiti at 5 Pointz: Street art in NYC in an open air graffiti art gallery

Veteran New York City aerosol artist, muralist and humanist, Jonathan “Meres One” Cohen, tells Kiss From The World® about the history of 5 Pointz, showing murals and legendary moments captured over the past few decades.

5 Pointz, Long Island City (aka 5 Pointz: The Institute of Higher Burnin’), was the largest aerosol exhibit space in the world for legal graffiti art.

From Wikipedia: It’s an “American mural space at 45–46 Davis Street in Long Island City, Queens, New York City. When the building opened in 1892, it housed the Neptune Meter factory, which built water meters.”

Despite a large protest, the graffiti mecca was demolish in 2013 and replaced with a residential complex.

“Graffiti art at 5 Pointz: street art NYC in an open air graffiti art gallery. This is where some of the best New York graffiti is at. Come with us to meet renowned graffiti artist, Meres One, as he shows us murals by famous graffiti artists including Cope2 and Lady Pink, as well as his own iconic Joker graffiti.” – Kiss From The World®

As Kiss From The World® notes in their YouTube description: The spirit of 5 Pointz has returned to New York City as the Museum of Street Art (MoSA) has arrived. It’s located at 189 Bowery.
