Bushwick is a vibrant, diverse neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. This portrait of Biggie Smalls, found on Wykoff Ave, is just one example of the stunning artwork on display for the community to enjoy. Click and drag to tour each of the areas using Street View.

Bushwick was founded by Dutch colonists in the 17th century and has undergone many changes since. Following World War II, the area became a hub for Latino culture, and art has flourished here in recent years.

The ever-changing nature of graffiti gives all the pieces a transient feeling, creating a free, open-air gallery with no openings or closings. This neon rose, also on Wykoff, may not be here next time you visit. Use Street View to look around.

With many Puerto Rican and Dominican residents, Bushwick is the largest Hispanic community in Brooklyn. These paintings on Waterbury reflect the Hispanic heritage so integral to the neighborhood's residents. Drag to find more art with Street View.

St. Nicholas Ave. is one of the best spots in the neighborhood to find street art. Old school graffiti appears alongside the new--an almost seamless merger of artistic worlds. Click to walk down the block and discover new works.
