View from MoMA P.S.1

The view north from MoMA P.S.1, a contemporary-art museum in Long Island City Queens. Across the street is a large graffiti message painted on the side of a tenement apartment building: “No Tengo $ Pero Tengo.” In the distance is the Queensborough Bridge connecting Queens to Manhattan, which is on the left of the image.

The P.S.1 is in a massive, renovated and re-purposed former public school building and an extension of New York City’s Museum of Modern Art. It tends to feature the art of  younger, up-and-coming artists and sometimes fills its galleries with additional work of artists with larger shows at MoMA in Midtown Manhattan.
