BROOKLYN - From splashy wall murals to tasty eats, the beauty of Brooklyn is that each block offers something different.

Getting around to every single spot can get tricky, so a magazine based here in the borough has made it easier for people to track down some of Brooklyn's best finds. L Magazine has compiled its annual list of the 50 Best Blocks in the borough, and News 12 Brooklyn hit the streets to sample some of its findings.

At a bar on Troutman Street in Bushwick, passers-by can soak in some of Brooklyn's best street art. The walls are lined with creative and colorful murals on a street once lined with steely warehouses and metal shops.

Foodies are encouraged to check out Smith Street in Cobble Hill for some of the best bars and restaurants the borough has to offer.

The magazine also listed some of the best streets to call home in the borough, including Cumberland Street in Fort Green, Westminster Road in Ditmas Park and India Street in Greenpoint.
