Brooklyn has it's own Flatiron Building. Well, maybe the name is different, but the shape looks almost the same ;-)
This building is located on Grand Army Plaza, in front of the Prospect Park
Favorite thing: The streets in Brooklyn are so much more quieter than in Manhattan. In areas like Greenpoint and Brooklyn Heights it gets fairly crowded but it's easy to wander off the beaten path and find a secluded area.
Favorite thing: Its all about meandering. Just walk, walk, and keep those tired little eyes open. All surfaces around Williamsburg will be covered in graffitti, stencil art, and the trusty new "I'm an Artist" medium, the wheat pasted poster. Just get a little off Bedford and walk into the streets you are sure to see something you like whether you consider it art or filth, theres something for everyone. One standout, Swoon, a woman who makes real intricate die cut figure that she wheat pastes all over. Its crazy to see this piece that was so time consuming quickly decay into invisibility.
Favorite thing: If you keep your eyes open, you'll see lots of pop culture references applied to buildings and streetlamps and sidewalks. I used to be pretty good at Ms. Pacman. This one's from Williamsburg.
