Directly off the Broadway-Junction subway station — on the borderline between East New York and Brownsville — are some of NYC’s most exhilarating graffiti walls. Here are a few more images captured this past week of the murals fashioned by both locals and out-of-towners.

The vision of Rez and Bugn ABK, a huge wall off the Broadway-Junction subway line in East New York has recently been transformed into a magical mural featuring elements of graffiti, traditional portraiture and collage. Here are some images we captured last week:

“We loved painting in this neighborhood,” reports Bugn. “We had lots of interaction with the folks who live here, and it was great to paint where folks appreciated us. This is just the beginning!”  As to the choice of figures portrayed – Martin Luther King, Jr., Jackie Robinson and Abe Lincoln – Bugn had the following to say: “We’re not kids anymore. We put our heavy hitters up. These are the people who inspired us as we were growing up. Women are on the way!”
