Snow Shoes

July 1st, 2012

On display outside 75 and 77 State Street in Brooklyn is a collection of punnily named footwear-based flower planters made from discarded objects. (Others include a rollerblade with a piece of wood: "Skate Board"; a sneaker with a small adding machine printer: "Foot Print"; and a pair of boots with a laptop: "Re-boot".) They're the work of Nat Hendricks, the buildings' owner. Nat told me that, much to his dismay, some Type A New Yorkers keep coming by and tying all the shoelaces.
