Gentrification has been a major issue in Greenpoint and Williamsburg for years. The class divide is apparent, especially with rents going sky high & condos popping up everywhere, so its no wonder why some are bitter. This was taken on West Street in Greenpoint & is reminiscent of Basquiat’s street poetry written on city walls in the late 70s.
