Art and Art-goers in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Gallery hopping (or crawling as we sometimes call it) is very different in Williamsburg than it is in the usual Chelsea neighborhood spot. I haven't been to Chelsea in a while unfortunately, except to see a nice exhibit of Dennis Hopper photographs at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery on West 26th. And even though I work IN Chelsea, I somehow though always make it out to DUMBO or Williamsburg in Brooklyn to view the galleries on First Thursdays and First Fridays. It's a far trip out there for me, but it's worth it to run around these cool, artsy neighbhorhoods to see local artwork while it's temporarily on display. Most of the time you get to meet the artist and enjoy free wine.

A few Saturday's ago it rained and nearly snowed in the city (before the blizzard hit). Some would say it actually did snow—I was out and though it looked like snow, it melted as soon as it hit the street pavement so I'm really not sure. Either way, it was a cold and rainy night for me spent wandering around in Gramercy trying to find good bubble tea and Indian food. While walking around with a broken umbrella, clunky galoshes and fingerless gloves, I enjoyed capturing nighttime images from Lexington Avenue—especially of the New York Life Insurance building over on 26th & Madison.

Thanks @johndeguzman on Twitter/TwitPic for ID'ing this building for me!
