Yesterday was the first full day of Northside Open Studios, and in nearly five hours I managed to cover two big studio buildings (87 Richardson and 255 Calyer), and one artist’s home studio in between them. Herein are the highlights. On today’s schedule: 250 and 61 Greenpoint Avenue, and the India Street Art Festival. See you out there!
