On the third floor of an unassuming warehouse building in Long Island City is a cavern of creativity. Welcome to Materials for the Arts, which gathers discarded items from businesses and individuals from across the five boroughs and donates them to public schools, nonprofits and artists. MFTA’s 35,000-square-foot warehouse is a treasure trove, stuffed with bolts of fabric, stacks of paint, spools of thread, instrument cases, books, frames, thread, zippers, office and classroom supplies, glassware and mannequin parts.
