A little bit of Bushwick

with one comment

We stayed in Bushwick in an Air BnB flat that was rather nice and possibly the cleanest accommodation I have ever stayed at. Bushwick is one of those emerging neighbourhoods, so it’s got some cool places, but also a lot of stodgy old places. And great restaurants but more boring dives. Unfair to compare it to Williamsburg, except that I keep hearing it’s the new Williamsburg. Maybe in ten years. And that’s fine.

First thing I noticed was the subway station. Dekalb Avenue. Bog standard, run of the mill, out of a movie set subway station.
17-3-15 subway-1And the people down there, waiting for trains, I suppose they’re your bog standard people.

17-3-15 subway-2Funny how the Bedford one is so cool, you can feel the buzzy energy… and just a few stops down the line… oh well…

So I didn’t take many photos ‘of’ Bushwick, but I took some photos ‘in’ Bushwick. Like these:
Bushwick-3Just a great sense of urgency here…

Bushwick-1
I thought this was a sacrilegious Madonna -until I went to process the photo and saw it wasn’t one at all…

Bushwick-6
And, yes, everything is art now – the beer on the wall

Bushwick-5
And also the wall

Bushwick-4And the tabletops

Bushwick-7And the slightly crazy lady taking these photos…
