Photo Essay: Bushwick (and a Wee Bit of Williamsburg)

 
Taking full advantage of the glorious sunshine and an invitation from a new friend, I ventured out of the crowded confines of midtown Manhattan to the industrial and artistic expanse that is Bushwick in Northern Brooklyn.  I didn't really know what to expect as I emerged from the L stop at Morgan and Bogart Streets, but I certainly didn't think I would see that much vibrant graffiti in those orderly grid streets, with stimulating art galleries in converted warehouses, organic food stores galore, a relaxed pedestrian vibe, street booksellers at every corner, excellent pizza joints, and even a man out walking his pet mountain cat.

Here are some of my photographs from that afternoon....some are two images stitched into one.  Such is the visual eclectic nature of this neighbourhood that these morphings look, for the most part, seamless, fitting and best of all, possible.
