Miss Heather, of NYC gave us a garden tour of some of the memorials spotted lately in her Greenpoint neighborhood.
But first, a brief history moment.
Early Colonization of Greenpoint:
Greenpoint was originally inhabited by Keskachauge Indians, a sub-tribe of the Lenape. Contemporary accounts describe it as remarkably verdant and beautiful, with Jack pine and oak forest, meadows, fresh water creeks and briny marshes. Water fowl and fish were abundant.
Flash forward to our first projects: Airbrush memorials for Luis* and Malo:
Smaller and more subtle examples include this memorial to Alexander McQueen on the B62 bus stop.
*update: Tribute to Luis located in Bushwick. Not Greenpoint.
