With so much quality street art and graffiti concentrated within the same neighborhoods — generally those edgier ones or on the edge of gentrification — I am delighted that Zed1 and Phlegm have brought their visions to Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.

Sheepshead Bay native Joe Bouganim, the owner of Bottleneck Gallery, organized these walls.
