So much to see so little time. This out of the way neighborhood is attracting a lot of tourist, not only because its an open air Art Gallery ,but because its also a very hip part of Brooklyn. The sights are super, but also there are little restaurant and shops,that are worth visiting.
I took so many pictures , I hope I didn’t post twice . Of course I will be going back , since new walls get painted every day.
Welcome to Brooklyn , more specifically the Bushwick collective, just off of Flushing Avenue.Such artist as Sticks, Icy & Hot , Prvt , Nychos , Blek le Rat ,the first graffiti artist in Paris, are featured. There is literally so much art at every corner , it’s hard to see it all in one afternoon, at least for me , who must search every nook.. They do also have tours, which you can book for $20.00 online , with the Bushwick Brooklyn Graff Tour.

The super cool Risa Tochigi Aka Boogie one half of the dynamic duo BoogieREZ,
This is such a cool neighborhood, which is also an extraordinary open air gallery .When you have seen enough , stop at the Sea Wolf Restaurant for a beer and some seafood. Service is fabulous and the staff super cool.
This is an interesting building I found while driving around this week end. Located in LIC , it reminded me a lot of 5 Pointz . This warehouse building is beautifully adorned with pictures of of deer, flowers, brains, and bubble and letters .. The murals are part of the Top to Bottom Project, created by artist James P. Quinn and producer Geoff Kuffner. Included are Artist Crash, Daze, Icy and Sot, and Magda Love . This Block spanning building is quite impressive, in its different style of art.
Magda Love’s lush jungle plants, , greet visitors at the entrance, while above, Binho Ribeiro’s blue owl keeps wide-eyed watch over the street. Around the corner, Case Ma’Claim dusted many layers of aerosol to create his image of two hands threading a needle. The work is amazingly detailed.Pioneers like Daze and Crash, have also contributed to the project.
