Day 54

Jackie Robinson Playground

February 22nd, 2012

Located right across the street from the former Ebbets Field. The park superintendent told me that one day last year he saw a Jehovah's Witness carrying a copy of The Watchtower with a beautiful painting of sea creatures on its cover. He found out who the artist was and asked him to replicate the painting, on a much larger scale, in the playground. It looks beautiful, but there turned out to be a problem: he used the wrong kind of paint, and now the surface becomes really slippery when it gets wet. The super said he'll have to figure out a solution before summer, when the bears start shooting water out of their mouths.
