These two blocks, which intersect Bedford Avenue, are ripe with graffiti and street art. Little alleyways hide all sorts of fun stuff to take a peek at. Of course, being Brooklyn, there's no shortage of fusion-Asian cuisine, bakeries, or bars to duck into. There's also the ubiquitous construction sites which are inevitable on every block now days as old buildings make way for new million-dollar apartments and condos. But still, despite the changes, these small Williamsburg streets appear to remain a safe haven for many of the smaller stores which would never survive in Manhattan's real estate climate.
I've begun to notice that the backs of crosswalk lights are a popular place for stickers and tags - I really enjoy this and will try to document them more frequently. There's a whole world of design to be found there!
(And for those wondering, the headline image is from a shoe store window. I can only assume they mean the shoes and not the people.)
