Check Out the Street Art
You can spend the day in the world’s best museums in Manhattan, but you should know that the warehouse walls of Bushwick are filled with some of the best art in NYC. Start your street art tour at the Bushwick Collective on Troutman Street at Saint Nicholas Avenue, where the colorful murals are painted on the walls of the neighboring blocks. For a fun party, the first Saturday in June, The Bushwick Collective hosts a block party which attracts quite a crowd. However, you can stroll through these few blocks any time of year on your own, taking in a DIY tour.
Although this is the stretch of Bushwick known for street art, there are also other notable murals in the Bushwick/East Williamsburg border near the Morgan Avenue L stop. Stroll through this section of Bushwick, stopping in at Friends NYC on Bogart Street for some vintage threads as well as a great collection of new clothes and jewelry, as you continue you walk through the arty streets of Bushwick.
