A devastating year for Bushwick


  1. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Devastating is right. How awful that people would do that to their own city like that. Some people just become such savages sometimes.

    Artwork is so very strong. Beautiful and so very sad at the same time. Especially the dove. Innocence lost being swallowed up and burned by the fire. Makes you cry. Unless is represents the dove coming up out of the fire like a rebirth. Then it’s uplifting.

    I remember that!! I was living in NY then (as a child)…but we lived on Long Island. I can remember my parents talking about the blackout and the incidents happening in “the city”. They were worried about my aunts & uncles who were living all across NYC at the time.
