Photography: Flushing Meadows-Corona Park
After a bit of a cold, dreary Spring in New York, we’ve finally had a real significant stretch of gorgeous weather. The other day, I decided to take my camera and wander around Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. As a boy, I spent quite a bit of time there; but recently being in the park has become an increasingly odd experience — parts of the park have been fairly well-kept while others have been left to decay in the elements. It’s confusing, maddening and heartbreaking because so much of the park defines what growing up in Queens is like. And yet on an artistic level, decay and rot are compelling; after all, everything will die at some point. Check out some photos below.
