The Sublime and the Beautiful

The Sublime and the Beautiful

About Newtown Creek:  a professor of aesthetics once told me that you “can’t have the beautiful without the ugly”.  I thought I agreed with him until today.  Newtown Creek has a beauty all its own.  So peaceful on the boat.  Different perspective of Lower Manhattan.  Beautiful Brooklyn Industrial spaces.  “Valuable real estate if cleaned up”.  I hope it stays undeveloped.  Will look forward to how the land is rezoned in future years. I want to see  bridge footprints turned into parks all over the country.
