Shame it will not be here long. I was told this winter it will be torn down. Only took a few minutes by subway from grand central station on the 7 train. Worth the trip. Bring a camera!

Everyone should take a gander to this spot. The graffiti art is always changing but is always awesome. The artists do a great job. It has quite the display. Across the street from PS1.
