Pretending to Be…


Where we once walked…

This is a photo of my dad… nearly 30 years ago…
Way before I was born…
In Brooklyn,
In a gas station on the corner of Flatbush Ave and Pacific Street, right by 5th ave…
He went there in hopes of a job,
A job towing old broken down cars…
There still are old broken cars around I suppose…
But the gas station isnt there anymore…
Torn down in hopes of a basketball arena that isnt coming anymore…
Thanks Bruce Ratner…. really…

I just saw this photo in my scrapbook and had a rush of zen-like nostalgia…
And I posted it for no other reason than that…

EDIT:
Before demolition:

After demolition:

Brooklyn is dying, and there aint no one to save her…
