Queens Street Art Tour
When people think of street art in NYC, they think of Brooklyn or the Lower East Side. But western Queens has a growing art scene that shouldn't be missed. From the artist haven of Long Island City up to the Socrates Sculpture Park and the Welling Court Murals, there is so much to see. On this tour, we will explore the Queens waterfront, exploring all of the great art the area has to offer. We will start in Long Island City, where Gantry State Park offers some of the best views in the city. From there, we will travel up to west Astoria, which boasts one of the city's fastest-growing street art scenes. This is a great tour for urban explores, artists, and photographers.
