138. NEW YORK ON FOOT. Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Northwestern Williamsburg just in from the East River has some of New York’s more interesting post-industrial scenery. This shot is another example of why just putting on a good pair of shoes and getting constructively lost is the best way to discover New York’s quirky splendor. The photo is nothing without the lifts in the background, although the bright sky pushed the camera sensor far beyond its capabilities. They were worth it.
