about 5 Pointz

The original 5 Pointz site was a museum without walls or doors.

People from all over the world travelled to the site, making it one of the most visited places for street art anywhere. In November 2013, it was lost forever – first whitewashed, then demolished. citizenM reached out to the 5 Pointz collective in 2016, with an aim to give 5 Pointz back to New York City. The result is the Museum of Street Art (MoSA), spanning the entire 20-floor staircase of the brand new citizenM New York Bowery hotel.

The MoSA celebrates the reunion of 20 artists, their creativity and their craft, while resurrecting a significant and beloved landmark. (Photo credit: Rae Maxwell).

come to MoSA

Museum of Street Art is now open.

Make no mistake: this is much more than a tourist attraction. Urban historians, street art buffs, Instagram thrillseekers – and of course, our guests, friends and neighbors – will all find something to admire at MoSA.

The first photo-op is the outdoor 5000-square-foot mural by Meres One, featuring letters culled from the original 5 Pointz landmark. The second photo-op is 21 floors above the first, at our bar in the clouds. From there, your graffiti descent begins.

Whether or not you’ve seen the original New York street art site at 5 Pointz, MoSA will be a one-in-a-million experience.
