The above drawing is waiting to become a mural in Jersey City. I’ll keep you posted as to where and when.

Many years ago I rented a studio in a friend’s building around the corner which is now know as Atlantic Yards. When they proposed the Barclays Center, my friend and building owner opposed it, fought it, built a website about it and as you know, lost the fight. But change is inevitable and Brooklyn moves fast:

But on a better and lighter note what is happening to bring back the Rockaways is more in the community spirit, )as opposed to lets grab as much land and now sky as possible.)

I’m still hot on the idea of affordable Petropolis.

Interesting about Jay Z and Leo Dicaprio…
