the sun may not ever set on a badass, but it will set on all of us, and upon our fair city, every single night. so what will we do with it? where will we go? who will we love? how will we move? in a town of endless possibilities, we will go. we will seek. and we will start here, with your weekend guide.
i’ve made plans for you, brooklyn. and they look so, so good on you.
it’s been one year since … and since the first little square of hope was placed upon our subway walls, giving a collective and powerful voice to this city as we tried to figure out how to move forward. Matthew Chavez who showed up in the days and weeks after the election in the subway with stacks of brightly colored sticky notes. “Express yourself” he told passersby. calling himsef “Levee”, or one who supports the city’s emotional tide, come see matthew express himself in words, at word, in greenpoint. he releases his new book and will host all of us to open up about how we have and are moving forward. all info here, 7-8pm, 126 franklin st.
