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).

#5pointzcreates

experience MoSA

Museum of Street Art is open to all.

You can’t visit the original 5 Pointz anymore. The New York graffiti landmark is gone forever, but not forgotten.

citizenM Museum of Street Art is a resurrection of the 5 Pointz art, spirit and community. 20 original artists have come together as a collective for the first time since 5 Pointz’ demolition, to work side by side once more. MoSA is a vertical journey through the revived spirit and graffiti art of 5 Pointz, rendered in wild color through the entire 20-story staircase of citizenM New York Bowery.

Start right at the entrance, where an astonishing red-and-black mural by lead artist Meres One features letters seen at the original 5 Pointz landmark. It’s the beginning of your journey through the new incarnation of 5 Pointz.

MoSA at citizenM New York Bowery is now open, and free to visit.
