Knowing PS1 had formerly been a public school, when confronted with a building going brick one way and cast concrete in the other, I walked in the direction of more brick. I turned a slight corner and found an awning door entrance with a security guard. I was immediately redirected to go around the other corner.

The courtyard entrance of PS1 is shielded from the outside like a back alley garage outpost for animal butchery or possible murders, giving off the vibe of death zone/ holocaust memorial. Once you walk through the new entrance design and greet the original building, you’ll encounter the most perfect example of the Hipster aesthetic (GOOP’s NYC Hipster Guide). Within the confines of those foreboding walls and gravel grounds are crowd surfing summer DJ parties and that Cosmo installation lights up.
