Just a few blocks away from the 7 train on 111th Street on the way to Flushing Meadows Corona Park are a few street vendors. If you get hungry, try a stick of barbecued chicken. It’s simply seasoned and for an extra kick throw some hot sauce on it. If that’s not enough, add a side of salchipapas (hot dogs and french fries) and wash it down with some horchata.

The view of 5 Pointz from the 7 train. 5 Pointz is an outdoor art exhibit for aerosol artists in Long Island City with 200,000 square feet of graffiti.  I never get tired of seeing Biggie welcoming me to Queens.

When you visit the NYC Transit Museum store, t-shirts are available for every subway line. Almost all of them boringly describe the train’s route:  Bronx to Brooklyn, 8th Avenue Local, blah blah blah. 
Only one t-shirt was the exception…our beloved #7 train.

You can’t escape Queens. This amazing photo mural, "7 Views Along the 7 Line" graces the walls of the 42nd St./Bryant Park subway stop.

5Pointz, famous for being an international “graffiti mecca”, is often admired from the 7 train. 5 Pointz is a building on Jackson Avenue and Crane. Graffiti covers it’s 200,000 square feet. If you are ever in Long Island City or visiting MoMA PS1 across the street, take a walk by or tour of 5Pointz. It’s a sight and perfect example of New York flava.
