A Bridge Not Too Far
I remembered seeing a street in Brooklyn where the Verrazano Bridge peeked up at the end of the block. Butch Belair and I were going to draw, so I mentioned this to him. He said let's find it. We drove around and around and this is the spot we came up with. It's not the one I remembered seeing but it was pretty damn good. I love the unusualness of the setting. It's as if God wanted to put a big mountain in Brooklyn, so he put this sculpture up to see what it would look like if he really put one there. I personally think a mountain would look great in Bay Ridge. For what it's worth I give my go ahead.
