We don't need to tell you graffiti has a long history in New York. Historians may point to cave drawings and scribbles on walls in ancient times as the beginning, but we know it really all began here in NYC. Although you won't catch many freshly painted subway cars these days (like in the '80s), you can still see new styles being created all over the city. And lucky for me, one is just down the street from where I call home. Just like a museum, The Graffiti Hall of Fame paints their walls every six months or so to create new art that will blow you away. It's easy to get to on the 6 train, it's close to Central Park, and if you're short on cash, you don't have to line up during a two-hour window like other museums in town. It's open 24-7 and is always free.
