Description View of a Bushwick street with heavily damaged townhouses in view. The top story of two of the houses has been completely destroyed, while the foundation of the top story of a third townhouse is still somewhat intact. The siding on the houses is chipped and/or peeling and many of the windows and doors are boarded-up. There is a lot of debris scattered on the sidewalk in front of the townhouses. We also see a few parked cars, one car driving up the road, and the elevated train tracks in the background.
