Modesto "Flako" Jimenez is Dominican, a poet, a gypsy cab driver and a native of Bushwick, Brooklyn. He identifies with the gentrifying artists who’ve flocked to the area in the last decade and the Hispanic locals with whom he grew up when Bushwick was better known for its crime rate than its hot new galleries.
Bushwick Daily takes you out for a Friday Night tour of our industrial, artistic, eclectic and ultimately unique neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn. Kittens, Art Galleries, Tacos, House Parties, Indie Music, Dancing & Drinking. A huge thanks to everyone who participated in the making of this video.
