water towers #3

"water towers #3.
Bushwick, Brooklyn "

5x7 oil on clayboard. 06-12-08


Bushwick is a very interesting neighborhood in that it has these pockets of burned out factories, sweatshops and who knows what else. Huge old structures just stand abandoned and rotting. On the other hand there is an increasing presence of artists coming into the area pushed out of Manhattan and neighboring hoods due to the cost of everything. You know what that means. The magic "G" word: gentrification. Oh well, maybe Prue and I can get a piece of the pie before its out of the question.
There are lots of cool rooftop entities out there and I got lots of good source photos. More to come.
