I find the choice of words very curious on this mural outside the site on 3rd and Bond that is currently being excavated in preparation for the construction for a bunch of "luxury" (is there any other kind?) condos.What about what happened AFTER the revolutionary war? Industrial Revolution anyone? Coal processing plants, fertilizer factories, oil refineries? They all existed rather close together in this very area. This piece of land is in between the uber toxic public place site and most likely not to be built Whole Foods site on Third Street. It's at spitting distance from the canal itself which is, an aquatic brownfield.
Also, since when is an artist excited about war? Let's do some slight word changing, shall we?"
You are here, where revolutionary war battles were fought by developers, steering longtime residents into the marshlands of brooklyn, right here where the ground is still soft, you are here at the site of excavation where toxins are released and brownfields are revealed>.
There that's better!!!
