The Morse Dry Dock Dial

$20.00

The Morse Dry Dock Dial is the Spring 2020 Informational Pamphlet, taking its name from the magazine published by the Morse Dry Dock Company, my great-grandfather’s employer in the early years of the twentieth century. The original publication reported on the lives and activities of their community of workers, many of which lived in the neighborhood, what was then called Bay Ridge and is now named Sunset Park, Brooklyn. This pamphlet talks about my family’s history in the neighborhood, the changes in the neighborhood since then, the industrial past, the post-industrial present, how nature has adapted the waterfront left behind by industry, how nature will change the waterfront in the coming decades, and what we might do in response, among many other things.

Edition of 250, letterpress and linocut on paper. There is also a virtual walking tour of the neighborhood to accompany the publication, which you can find here.

Funds raised from the sale of individual copies of this pamphlet will go to UPROSE. UPROSE promotes sustainability and resiliency in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighborhood through community organizing, education, indigenous and youth leadership development, and cultural/artistic expression. https://www.uprose.org

The 2020 Brain Washing from Phone Towers Informational Pamphlet Series is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council.
