Art-Speckled Streets of Berlin's Hippest 'Hood
Formerly one of Berlin’s poorest neighborhoods—flanked by the wall and home to the city’s largest Turkish population and consequently best Turkish market in borough SO 36—Kreuzberg has become a colony of youth, culture, and color since the wall fell in 1989. It’s one of Berlin’s most artistic neighborhoods, home to hole-in-the-wall record stores, graffiti shops, basement clubs, and 30-foot murals on unmarked buildings. Pictured here are two by acclaimed French street artist Blu.
