Bushwick is one of NYC’s most interesting neighborhoods, gritty and passionate about experimental arts with vibrant street art, German beer history, a rich Latin culture, hipster shops and a whole lot of quirk. On this photo walk, we’ll explore these themes, weaving through history while capturing great shots.
Whether you’re an Instagrammer or just enjoy photography for pleasure, you’ll end the tour with interesting photos for your feed or home photo album.
Bonus: If you have questions about starting a tour company, growing an Instagram following or turning your passion for travel into a business, Jessie is happy to answer any questions!
