Best Graffiti Sight-Seeing Tour (2008)


No wonder Brooklyn's new logo has become a spray paint can. For the mere price of a $1.50 Metrocard, you can take your very own sight-seeing tour in New York's hot-spot artist borough. Hop onto the J/Z (BROWN LINE) TRAIN at Essex and Delancey and you're on your way. On the bridge, look between the interstices for some rare little hits in red and gold. Then, bam, comes Williamsburg and you're eye level with feats of bravery—covered warehouses, water towers, and billboards made for the taking, all while cruising the shaky aboveground tracks. Take Jay Zee to the end of the line into Bushwick and beyond, where the paint-covered abandoned buildings only get richer.
