Golden City is about Canarsie, a neighborhood at the far edge of Brooklyn on the shores of Jamaica Bay. Learn about the earliest history of the neighborhood, from the Lenape to the Dutch to the years when people flocked here to the amusement park that gives the pamphlet its name, and get an overview of current issues. Edition of 200, letterpress and relief printing.
You can also join me on a walk through the neighborhood here.
The 2020 Brain Washing from Phone Towers Informational Pamphlets 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.
