Better Than Real Because It's Not.

(Mar 11) Had a meeting in Park Slope, so I wandered through the old ‘hood. The closer I got to my old home though, the more I thought about wheeling Billy to the animal hospital to die.

when i moved here, i was told it was park slope
Welcome to SuperFund site, Gowanus

but don't look beyond this narrow slice
This view is about the only thing that hasn’t changed

but there were no bars on the windows, wtf
I lived here in the apartment on the right, for four years

otherwise, i remember this view well
The tiles on the floor are new

other than the tribute in light
The WTC view is quite new

I have no idea what this thing is

and it's changing again
This place was never not changing.

i just like taking pictures of water towers
This is more or less the same

hard to reach, but generally doesn't stop anyone
I’m surprised no one painted over “Open Your Eyes”

but the paint indeed never was wet
This is funny because the bridge was always covered in “WET PAINT” signs.

looks like it may have changed hands again
This place had been sold shortly before I left

now there's a foundry!
When I left, there were no robots.
