Just off of Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, you’ll find a quirky shoe-themed street art installation on the facade of 75 and 75A Hoyt Street. There are a combination of found objects, but most are shoes titled with puns. It’s the work of Nat Hendricks, owner of several buildings on this block of Hoyt Street, including the vintage diner, Victory Cafe, on the corner of Hoyt Street and Smith Street.
