Brooklyn, New York is hip.
You can almost smell its resurrection, it's ... redemption. Here's a recent longread from the New York Times about the borough written by long-time resident Wendell Jamieson.
The wholesale renovation going on in this once industrial, down-and-out neighbourhood is exhilarating.
In Brooklyn Bridge Park the family-friendly waterfront along the East River, there's plenty of fencing and temporary walls to hide construction.
But no space is left useless.
I particularly admire the focus on photography. Aren't Elegence and Eloquence delightful?
The role of the snapper (definition: one who snaps) today has been relegated because iPhones have turned us all into photographers. I think covering fencing with art is a great way to use space.
We should do more of it here.
