Charm City Streets walked miles and miles each day last week seeking out recent and new-to-me murals in and around Brooklyn.
I have fond memories from my college years of staying in hostels while traveling throughout Germany and Switzerland. They provided a spartan, inexpensive way to see Europe. Inexpensive being the key deciding factor during that time period of my life.
The J, M and Z metro lines run on elevated tracks above Broadway in Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood. Walking along Broadway and its side streets last month, Charm City Streets encountered a collection of fascinating murals and dope graffiti.
Two years ago, JMZ Walls began. It shares a similar belief with The Bushwick Collective, that is, street art has a positive influence on a neighborhood and benefits both local community members and tourists alike.
Centered around the Myrtle Avenue-Broadway Station (which the J, M and Z subway lines share), you will find an open air gallery of rich, imaginative murals created by prominent artists from Brooklyn and the four corners of the globe.
