See Subway Trains Before They’re Dropped in the Ocean
As part of Williamsburg’s Every 2nd gallery openings tonight, The Front Room is showing the amazing NYC subway train photographs Stephen Mallon shot in “Next Stop Atlantic,” an exhibition of photographs by Stephen Mallon. The stunning series captures the retirement of hundreds of New York City Subway cars to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean.

THE JEWISH COMMUNITY CELEBRATES THE ARRIVAL OF YEAR 5771.
School started this week and just as the last fast of Ramadan is breaking here in Brooklyn for our Muslim brothers and sisters, the Brooklyn Jewish community is celebrating the arrival of year 5771 which marks the creation of earth and heaven by God.
BSA would like to celebrate and honor freedom of religion in NYC and invite you to enjoy these images that mark the start of the celebrations taken at dusk last night by Jaime Rojo.
Visitor Thomas Noesner was in New York a couple of weeks ago for a media project and took some time off to hit the streets and subway with his video camera – always rich trolling no matter the time of day or night. Combined with a drum sequence and soundtrack from sound designer Toussaint, they produced a rather slick video montage of NYC in the summer. It’s a fitting tribute to the spirit of the city.
Brooklyn Galleries are in the House(boat) on the Hudson
From the moment you jog across the roaring West Side Highway and dodge the racing rollerblader lane
to step onto the lurching dock, the Fountain Art Fair let’s you know that it’s not going to be a typical ride. In it’s third year, the unofficial Anti-Armory floating fair on Pier 66 features independent and non-traditional and street artists and their works.
9 galleries are participating this year, including a Glowlab fund-raising mini-gallery that’s helping street artist Swoon mount a new floating spectacular exhibit in the sea, this time it will navigate the Adriatic Sea from the Karst region of Slovenia to Venice, Italy in May of 2009. Artist Greg Haberny takes over the entire McCaig Welles booth with a cacophonic explosion of patriotic symbolism and corporate indictments in a decidedly not tongue-in-cheek installation called “The Donkey Party Game”. And AdHoc uses their wallspaces to spread the love of color, pattern, symbols and the police state with floor to ceiling installations done by Peripheral Media Projects (PMP).
Sure to entertain, the fair, mounted on a floating barge with an insecure-looking infrastructure, is by turns perplexing and powerful, frank and beguiling… just what you might expect from places that favor the art renegades.
Artists like Maya Hayuk, Royce Bannon, and infinity are part of the Swoon flotilla benefit. Raffle tickets are being sold to win a custom Swoon piece. (photo Steven P. Harrington)
