Bay Ridge gets multiple mentions in The L Magazine‘s article, “The 50 Best Blocks in Brooklyn”, and the 5th Avenue SAW gets a special mention!
39. Best Block for Art:
(from about 70th Street to 90th Street, Bay Ridge)
Not in the ‘Burg and not in the ‘Wick, and only for a couple months or so in early summer, the best block for art is Bay Ridge’s bustling Fifth Avenue, when it’s taken over by the annual Bay Ridge Art Walk—storefront after storefront adorned with artworks by artists from all over Brooklyn. (And yes, it’s not one block, but it’s like a block party!)
