I feel like a common misconception about NYC is that it’s got ZERO nature.

In nearly seven years of living in (or in very close proximity to) Williamsburg, I’ve amassed an impressive collection of photos of the prolific street art in this Brooklyn hood.

Happy 4th of July!

I’m missing 4th of July in NYC for the second consecutive year (last year I was in London, this year I’m in Cape Cod), but still wanted to pay a little homage on the blog here because I’ve had so many great 4th’s in New York!
