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…

Kicking Around Brooklyn in the Snow

with 2 comments

I’ve been beating myself up lately for neglecting this blog… sigh… the reality is I’ve been doing so much travel and making so many pictures, I’ve really not had the time to develop or share them. Just got back from the US on Saturday. There’s over a thousand photos to process…

Let’s start with a Fabulous Snowy Day in Williamsburg! We rented an Air BnB apartment on Berry St and waited for the world to happen. The World did not disappoint!!!

It’s kind of sad that the smokers are really the only ones out there savouring the moment. Everyone else was in a rush to get somewhere out of it.

Looking down the street.

And up the street!

And just not going to be going anywhere, really… Better get back inside where it’s warm. (And I mean warm! Why are all New York apartments so bloody hot???)

I just love Williamsburg 🙂
