Under Elevated Trains

November 28th, 2011 Posted in Uncategorized

Before I forget, I started following the tweets of a poet name Melissa Broder because she tweets things like this:

“I love a crisis b/c it validates a lifetime of foreboding.”

For some reason I’ve always been attracted to the world under elevated trains. I love the look and feel of them, the stores you tend to find under them. Maybe because it has that in-a-fort sort of ambience. I took this coming down the stairs from the G train in Williamsburg in Brooklyn. I’m thinking of doing a series. Yeah, I like that idea. Except, I wonder how many times I say I’m going to do an “X” series and then never do.

    Stacy do you know the painter John Sloane (1871-1951)? He lived in Chelsea and often painted street scenes under the elevated trains. I think you would like his work (just be sure to search for “John Sloane NYC” as there is another JS who paints for calendars and puzzles).

    Oops. No “e” on Sloan.

    I do know Sloan’s work! But now that you’ve reminded me of him, I feel like seeing it again.
