Joanna’s Amazing Magazine Editorial: Bed-Stuy, Do or Die

POSTED BY Joanna Toto on 2015/09/30

Bedford-Stuyvesant, a Brooklyn neighborhood on the verge of gentrification, is hanging on to its deep cultural roots and history. In this shoot for Amazing Magazine, Joanna Toto roamed the neighborhood and came across some authentic city moments. “The skateboarders just happened to be there,” says Joanna, as well as a little girl with her jump rope, and the Mister Softee truck whose familiar tune is the soundtrack to every New Yorker’s summer.
