Best NYC Spots for Street Art

So here’s all about the finest pieces around the City and where to find them…

Bushwick / Williamsburg

Brooklyn is one of the coolest kids in town when it comes to graffiti and street art. That might be no news to you, but that doesn’t mean you should skip the brilliant pieces out there. Make sure you don’t miss The Bushwick Collective (Troutman Street @ Saint Nicholas Avenue). For a little bit of a sneak peak, visit The Bushwick Collective on Instagram.

Cool pieces in Brooklyn:

Astoria, Queens

Astoria is famous for it’s beautiful graffiti, so if you’re a lover, make sure you don’t skip the streets of Queens during your graffiti hunt. The Wellington Court Mural Project is one of the many treasures Astoria has to offer.
