The Brooklyn Museum unveiled its new entranceway over the weekend. This could become a great public space, but it would have more of a chance if there were other things (restaurants, a movie theater, shopping) to bring people to the area.

Meanwhile, over at Prospect Park, people really seem to be getting into this spring thing.

While taking the last photo, I apparently annoyed a watchdog in a vacant lot. After a few minutes of loud barking, a modern-day snake charmer, complete with a scraggly beard and a hat that's about as close to a turban as you can find on Canal Street, emerged from a nearby building with a flute and gently quieted the dog by playing a tune that wafted down the empty street. This is why I love New York.

Fort Greene/Navy Yard, Brooklyn. What is a meat door used for?

A generous friend snagged me an invite to the opening reception for Subway Style: Architecture and Design in the New York City Subway. It's at the UBS Art Gallery, 1285 Sixth Avenue, through June 18, and well worth a (free) visit. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 8-6.

My assumption that there's nothing worth photographing in Los Angeles has been shattered by pixpopuli.
