I’m usually a bit reluctant to do any street photography in my own neighborhood lest I annoy the other residents, but the lighting was too good to pass up today and I decided to venture down to Bush Terminal Park on the edge of the Bay Ridge Channel.
Hidden on the far side of the industrial zone in Sunset Park, it’s not an area I’ve visited often. The park has only been open for a couple of years after being converted from an old shipping port, and it still maintains a rustic aesthetic. Though the train tracks that run through the streets have long been out of commission, many of the old warehouses are still in use and I was surprised by how many people were hanging around on a Sunday afternoon.
With the quickly gentrifying Industry City only a few blocks away, I imagine it’s just a matter of time before this little known park is no longer a secret.
