Bushwick Beyond the Brand

Video: A transformation in pictures

By Nathan Place

Meryl Meisler taught art at a public middle school in Bushwick from 1981 to 1994. During that time, she took hundreds of photographs of the neighborhood. Starting May 31, an exhibit at the Living Gallery in Brooklyn will feature many of those photos, along with more Meisler has taken since 2007, giving us a vivid look at Bushwick’s past and present.
