Brooklyn Bridge Park
Tom Fruin’s colorful plexiglass house – titled Kolonihavehus – was installed last Fall into Brooklyn Bridge Park. It’s been cloudy each time I’ve found myself in the park since the installation, but last week I had a delivery in Dumbo and decided to take a walk afterwards because it was such a beautiful day. I finally got to see the house in the sun, which was so colorful in all its sun-drenched glory. It looked spectacular and couldn’t have a better backdrop from this viewpoint with the Brooklyn Bridge, that Frank Gehry tower, and the Freedom tower. New York summers can be a little tough on me (I’m from San Diego, remember?!), but it’s days like this one that make up for a lot of those humid and stormy dog days of summer.
