Last weekend, I spent an afternoon wandering Greenpoint with a friend. Even though I am coming up on my one-year anniversary in NYC, there is still so much more to explore. I am finding my way around these days, and can somewhat navigate the subway system, but there is still so much more to explore!
One of my favorite things to do when traveling is just to wander around and see cities by foot. I spent so much of my time in India, Vietnam and South America just wandering. Visiting different neighborhoods, wandering into coffee shops, trying to get a glimpse of what life is like. In NYC, it is no different.
But, one of the things that I particularly like to do in NYC is to check out all of the street art, as it is amazing, free and abundant! And Greenpoint did not disappoint. First off, it is on the water, which was pretty cool to check out.
And there were a bunch of abandoned buildings that were great tableaus for local artists.
Here are some more pictures from Greenpoint — come check it out!
During my visit to San Francisco, I will be on the look-out as well.
