Post image for Exploring the Southern Edge of Bushwick Open Studios

There aren’t as many outskirts to Bushwick Open Studios as there once were. The 2013 edition was brimming even at the very edges of designated “Bushwick,” which really oozes over into the adjacent East Williamsburg and Ridgewood, though it seems steadfast in not stepping over the Broadway line to Bed-Stuy. It was in this area just north of the Broadway border that I set out to explore this past weekend, and where even if it’s only getting more developed, it’s still anchored by some more offbeat places to see and create art. A 48-foot tractor trailer, for one.

Post image for Uneven but Steeply Discounted Books and Posters at Luhring Augustine Bushwick

Luhring Augustine holds forth, a garrison mirage, on Bushwick’s Knickerbocker Avenue.

Post image for South of the Border: Going Deep for Bushwick Open Studios

I live in Bushwick. I don’t have a hip loft and there are no artisan flea markets, coffee shops or health food stores. Out by the cemetery, in what is technically Bushwick, but is a stone’s throw from Bed-Stuy and East New York, I naively assumed I was a lone outpost of the art world.
