I just moved to Brooklyn a few months ago (signed a 1-year lease on my first apartment alone and these beautiful street murals are that of the Bushwick Collective, a venture started by a long-term Bushwick resident, where walls of surrounding businesses are donated to international artists to express themselves. How beautiful are they? Thank you to Amy for taking these photos of me.)
