A construction fence wraps around a shut down gas station on 4th Avenue and Union Street where Park Slope borders Gowanus in Brooklyn. Many Black Lives Matter demonstrations took place in this area this past month, and it is around that time this fence got covered with poignant, witty and lovely murals on three street sides. I just had to take pictures when I discovered them walking in my neighborhood.
The fence is not made to last. Eventually another 12 story residential apartment building will be erected at this site. The murals will be gone. But here they are now on my modest blog to be preserved in some form while this blog endures and to share with you wherever you happen to connect to the internet.
