Are you into street art?

Then you’ll find Bushwick in Brooklyn, New York amazing! Check the map to find some of the best spots I discovered for Your Little Black Book.

Ok, so it might be clear that we’re kind of into street art. It’s just fascinating to see how detailed some pieces are. Wish we could have one on our wall…
I think the most insane street art is located is in Bushwick in Brooklyn, New York. We biked all the way up to this cool neighbourhood in Brooklyn. Watch out for glass!

I suggest you start by having your caffeine shot at AP Cafe on Troutman street. This awesome place has just recently been opened, and the owners (two super nice, cool guys) did a great job on the interior. I’m not surprised to hear one of them is an interior designer. This modern, minimalistic decor gives it a cool vibe. Nice people, great hotspot! Places like this are still hard to find in this neighbourhood, but new hip places are popping up in different areas. It’s only a matter of time before this street and neighbourhood is ‘the next place to be’.

After this short break just stroll or bike around. You’ll see some amazing pieces of artwork here.
The best street art we’ve seen so far is located in/around/across Troutman/ Scott/ Bogart/ St Nicholas/ Morgan street. Have a look at the map, to see just a fraction of the cool street art we’ve discovered. There is so much more to see here! You will see many pieces of The Bushwick Collective, just incredible…

You can also use this map here, which is a self-guided graffiti tour through Bushwick. OffManhattan.com also made it for parts of Williamsburg, which you can find here. I do think they are a bit outdated and that the best ones are missing. Like these ones for example:

We end our afternoon with a couple of refreshing Summer Ales at The Bodega on their lovely terrace. If I were you I’d do the same!
