As the shots from my latest adventure are finally done with the developing process but I haven’t had the chance to write and research as of yet, a single shot greets you today, at this – your Newtown Pentacle. Depicting a section of Brooklyn’s Third Avenue in Sunset Park, which is likely the least pedestrian friendly section of the entire borough of Brooklyn, that’s the Gowanus Expressway on the left.


Upcoming Tours and events
