Shopping Cart Gets Cement Shoes In Williamsburg Park
Scouting NY recently celebrated its fifth birthday!! That's five years and over 650 posts dedicated to exploring New York's mysteries and hidden treasures. Plenty more articles to post coming soon, but this is the the one time of the year when I politely ask, with hat in hand:
If you’re a fan of Scouting NY and have enjoyed my work over the past year, would you consider making a donation to help me make my first movie? If you think I do a good job with my site, all I can say is that I’ve been working a thousand times as hard on my movie, and literally every penny counts. And you even get a special Scouting NY sticker/magnet as a thank-you gift! Click here to donate!
I was walking by the small, triangle-shaped Macri Park in Williamsburg near the Lorimer stop today…
…when I noticed something that I think is new…
At the corner by Metropolitan and Meeker, someone has dumped a 4-foot x 4-foot mound of cement with a Home Depot shopping cart embedded in it:
There was no official plaque posted nearby, so I’m guessing it’s guerrilla art. I couldn’t tell if it was cemented to the ground, or was simply dropped into place, but either would be pretty impressive for a covert operation:
The carriage is filled with a bunch of six packs painted gray…and that’s it:
Weird, right? I can’t find a thing about this online. Anyone know anything? What did this poor shopping cart do??
It's fundraising week on Scouting NY, and if you liked the post you just read, would you consider making a donation to help me make my first movie?
