The Outdoor Living Room on Delancey
This image has been archived or removed.
On the southwest corner of Delancey and Chrystie, steps behind the Hua Mei Bird Garden in Sara D. Roosevelt Park, is a relatively new makeshift micro-campsite. What remains of the chickenwire fencework was tossed aside long ago. Barely visible is this outdoor living room of sorts, accessible via shale-paved pathway into the brush. The outdoor social space includes stone-stacked benches, crates, and even a beat-up dresser.
On many a morning, a crew of men is often seen shooting the shit, smoking, and drinking liquid nourishment.
