P.S. 1

March 27th, 2010

I spent a wonderful Saturday afternoon exploring P.S. 1 for the first time and jammin to DJ Desi Santiago with two new friends.

The P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center is one of the largest and oldest institutions in the U.S. dedicated solely to contemporary art. It is located in the neighborhood of Long Island City right outside of Manhattan and easily accessible by metro. Definitely recommended!
