Photo by myself on Bedford Avenue, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Bedford Avenue is the main drag in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
In the last few years, new stores and high-rise apartment buildings have crept into the neighborhood. Hip restaurants, design stores and a great view of Manhattan make Williamsburg a desirable place to live for hipsters and young families.
A little arty, a little gritty, just about every door, ATM and signpost is decorated with stickers, paste-ups and tags.
By the way, Wikipedia says that Bedford Avenue happens to be the longest street in Brooklyn (over 10 miles). The street starts in Greenpoint (just northeast of Williamsburg) and stretches all the way to Sheepshead Bay, a neighborhood near Coney Island.
