108 WYCKOFF

I’ve been taking long walks in Brooklyn lately. And the other day in Cobble Hill I came upon this amazing facade festooning the brownstone at 108 Wyckoff Street.

It’s a fantastic riot of mosaics and messages, colored stones and mirror glass, lace and silhouettes, toy figurines and goddess statues, lovers and angels, flowers and kittens, outrage and whimsy. “Please enjoy, look, touch, but do not take the objects”.

I just had to take copious pictures to try to capture this work of art and activism and then share it with an audience that is less likely to amble by this Brooklyn side street anytime soon.

    This looks like it’s using techniques similar to the Magic Gardens on South Street in Philly.
