Bushwick Yard 2012

January 16th, 2012 by

Bushwick Yard. I'm sure some really dumb internet assholes are going to bitch at me about 'blowing up' this spot but trust me, the cops know all about it.

This yard has been here since forever. Back in the day it was a tightly packed yard with over a dozen small customers getting boxcars of everything from Tin to Beer to BEEF.

Today, there's still plenty of beef, but less rail customers. Much of the old yard area has been tacking over by a building supply customer, and more recently, a cement and stone company that takes deliveries of rocks from CT.

For a long time the tracks around Morgan ave were littered with abandoned cars and other urban debris. Those days are long gone - though the graffit sure isn't. The yard space has become a discrete corner of a hipster neighborhood where people still occasionally paint. Fortunately though it hasn't been soiled by a load of bad 'street art', and has remained the providence of the aersol artists.
