Brooklyn Watertower

Monday, June 18, 2012

A few days ago Brooklyn got its own stained-glass watertower. Artist, Tom Fruin created this awesome gem using 1000 pieces of salvaged plexiglass. He brilliantly collected each piece from different parts of NYC including the floors of Chinatown to even the closed Dumbo studio. Oh, but there is more, from now on, the kaleidoscopic watertower will be lit each day at dusk giving the whole city a nightly light show. Magical, don’t you think? I'd love to grab a blanket, some wine and spend the evening watching the twinkling ski. Lovelies, are you planning a trip to the city this summer? xo

P.S: Also, 1940s NYC and more twinkling skies.
P.P.S: Do you remember the Brooklyn movie nights?
