You don't have to go to Queens for great graffiti, this truck is parked most days on 52nd St. and Park Ave.

PicPatrol has some great photos of graffiti murals.

Random links to contemporary art photographers: Candid Hofer, Anders Krisar, Richard Misrach, and Edward Burtynsky, who's got the best website and who therefore must be the best artist.

 
 
A Day in Queens - Part 3


The day ended by the park below the new residential towers in Long Island City, just off the first stop of the 7-train in Queens. The view of midtown is spectacular.

A quick scan of NYCBloggers shows a William Bernthal who lives at this stop and has many great photos of Queens. Quarlo is two stops away and frequently fotoblogs Queens.

 
 
A Day in Queens - Part 2

Riding in the first or last car along an elevated track makes the subway feel a bit like a rollercoaster.



Roosevelt Avenue in Jackson Heights.



74th St. in Jackson Heights. Turning a corner I can go from Bogota to Bombay. Highly recomended: Jackson Diner, Tacolandia, La Uruguaya Bakery.
 
 
A Day in Queens - Part 1


Since my life during the week is much too boring to blog about, I'll draw out the weekend. First up in the day was the Phun Phactory in Queens. Across the street from PS1, it's one of the best places in all of New York to see Graffiti art.


I like using graffiti as a back-drop for portraits to localize things, ground it in New York.


A vision of the past. Browsing thru Martha Cooper and Henry Chalafant's Subway Art makes me very nostaligic for New York in the 70s [I was born in '76].

does spelling it out really prevent spam?
