Urban Braids in Progress in Flatbush Brooklyn

On June 3, 4, and 5 Chris and I spent midnight work shifts so common for urban lighting. This time supervising prepared string and rope -light while the strands were suspended by Friedman Productions.

The subway train splits Newkirk Plaza into 2 walkways lined with gritty retail and restaurants.

Looking up from Brooklyn’s Newkirk Plaza subway platform, the straphanger will exclaim, I have arrived!

Also looking down from the Plaza, Urban Braids presents a carnivalesque sight against the smooth subway platform illumination. A strange juxtaposition.

D.I.Y. Lighting is braided, twisted string lighting made by local community.
