Welcome to the Jungle

STATE STREET, Brooklyn: Right around the corner from the Macy’s headquarters in downtown Brooklyn I found a jungle. The city is amazing that way, with its pockets of green. These secret spaces were one of my main reasons for starting this blog. To explore how others were expressing themselves plant wise in such close concrete quarters.

My brother and I were lucky enough to be invited to an exclusive parlor show in an amazing building that was shared between 7 – 10 musicians at any given time. To my delight the place also featured an ancient backyard with a mess of bamboo and some huge trees. The darkness looking down from the balcony was deep, but when you looked straight out over the rustling leaves there was a massive parking lot and garage with glaring spot lights. The juxtaposition was so perfect and simultaneously so… disconcerting? I don’t even know how to describe it. It was an amazing night. The music was pretty good too.
