After touring Brooklyn, Charm City Streets boarded the L Line and spent two days in Lower Manhattan in search of new and new-to-me murals.
Richmond is a great place to visit: magnificent architecture, delicious restaurants to suit every palate, easy to navigate and walk about, welcoming atmosphere, a noteworthy mile-long canal park, and it is only a 3 hour drive from Baltimore. All in all it is an ideal weekend destination.
The weather forecast called for mild temperatures and sunny skies, so Charm City Streets took off to spend a few days in Brooklyn. Touring the streets of Bushwick and East Williamsburg is always a treat. Colorful murals, fascinating wheatpastes, and kewl graffiti covered many walls.
Last week Charm City Streets spent three days in Brooklyn, Williamsburg, and Lower Manhattan – enjoying the deli food and the street art.
In today’s post you see murals created earlier this summer during the annual Bushwick Block Party; plus, a number of other art pieces found in and around Bushwick.
Charm City Streets traveled to Brooklyn to take in the Third Annual Bushwick Collective Block Party, May 30th – Jun 1st. It was huge. The entire block of Troutman Street between St. Nicholas and Wyckoff Streets was closed to traffic. There was live music and live painting all weekend long. Got to see a number of artists at work, including Damien Mitchell, Jerkface, Lexi Bella, Meres, Pixel Pancho & Case Ma’Claim, and Vers. Cool experience! I gotta go back next year.
