New York City is the original home of street art, a playground for artists from around the world.
The current best place (the “best place” is always a moving target) to take in NYC’s graffiti and street art culture is in Brooklyn. It used to be Williamsburg, but the artistic community has been pushed aside, to neighboring Bushwick — which greedy real estate agents have taken to calling “East Williamsburg.”
Bushwick is one massive, growing graffiti exhibit. While the neighborhood has its share of art studios and galleries, it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that attracts so many street artists. Between its streets and alleys, you’ll cross paths with the city’s (and the world’s) most creative street art. One of the most exciting things about street art is that you could take the same exact stroll a year later and see an almost entirely new ephemeral exhibit.
With an experienced guide, you’ll learn about the artists and stories behind each quickly or carefully executed piece and gain a new appreciation for the artform that is, for urban-dwellers the world over, almost like any other process of nature.
And as on other tours, you’ll get a deeper historical dive into the neighborhood, which like many New York hamlets, has experienced its own series of booms and busts, highs and lows.
