Giving thanks to the neighborhood.

The ‘Canal Nest Colony‘ was recently created by our friend David Moses, an architect here in New York City, and a few of his colleagues. As part of a 48-hour design competition, the crew designed and built a colony of bird houses for Eastern Blue Birds and Purple Martins in the post-industrial Gowanus Canal area of Brooklyn. They took public transportation to a nursery in Allentown, N.J., borrowed a cube truck, then used salvaged wood to build the nests.

Hats off to you gents! This is such a lovely way to give big ups to our neighborhood.
