What you'll do
We'll start at a local bakery for a Mexican pastry before heading toward the famous Bushwick Collective, a street art gallery stretching over 10 blocks. You'll learn about the artists and the history of graffiti. We'll also walk beyond the walls of the Collective, exploring other outdoor art missions. From there, we'll continue on toward Brewer's Row, a historic street of 19th-century breweries now covered in amazing murals. Along the way we'll pop into a raw chocolate shop for some samples, ending with a beer (own expense) at the former Edward B. Hittleman Brewery—now a hip bar and events space—which made “near beer” during Prohibition.
I’m a native New Yorker and professional photographer. I also run two travel blogs—Jessie on a Journey and Epicure & Culture—and have contributed to publications such as CNN, USA TODAY, and Business Insider. When not getting lost with my notebook and camera, I love taking dance classes, finding local hikes or bike rides, and finding the best spicy cocktails in NYC. Fun fact: When BBC Travel came to NYC for a TV segment I was their tour guide!
