Location Description:

Somewhere between the Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum, P.S. 1, Socrates Sculpture Park, and the Center for Holographic Arts in Long Island City sits the outdoor Phun Phactory aerosol-art museum, a chemical reminder of a time when doing the robot and spinning on your back was considered stupid fresh and hip-hop was just a twinkle in some rappers' eyes. Intricate lettering, cartoon-like figures, and spray-painted inner-city landscapes equal freedom of expression at this space where urban artists get a chance to paint legal murals. Founded to keep streets clean and channel raw creativity toward positive growth, Phun Phactory is best seen from the elevated No. 7 train, if only for a fleeting second.
