In this compact volume, two artists from Brooklyn present a photographic time capsule of street art located in the largest borough of New York City. The 105 colorful works, any of which might be destroyed by the time of the book's publication, are found on walls, signs, and window sills; and the artists use everything from spray paint and stencils to paper, wood, steel, furniture parts, and socks.
