Brooklyn's Metropolitan Avenue



























I've only been to brooklyn a few times so I can't even say for sure exactly where this is, other than it's on metropolitan avenue. we did cross over a small bridge to get there and although it wasn't that far from farmingdale, it was a distinctly different neighborhood. I found this sign to be very appealing - I can't wait to go back and take more pictures.

This art on the wall is a bright spot on what seems to be a devastated area. Usually it is graffiti but this is very nice. Thanks for sharing.

There was funny pink randomness in this shot. Not a straight line in sight.

That's a beautiful sign. I love the vibrant pink color, and it so happens there's a plant right next to it. Great capture!

I like how cheerful this sign is in relation to its surroundings

This is probably Greenpoint or Williamsburg?
