Steps From Bushwick Open Studios 2016

I say “steps” in honor of all of the ground covered during Bushwick Open Studios this year.

Held on the first weekend of October, the 10th annual open studio tradition had a different feel this year. I have to say, it was both darker and lighter: the October cold weighed in over the industrial East Williamsburg and Bushwick zones, resulting in lighter crowds due to the date change. Despite it all, I was ready for the BOS madness.

Here is all that my tie-dye stitch sneakers and camera phone let me cover, from 1040 Metropolitan Avenue in East Williamsburg to 44 Stewart Street over behind the dump, and to 17-17 Troutman out in Ridgewood.
