“Going your way is going no way.”

Regarding train delays.

My crappy attempt at an A train (I lacked the materials today, and the time to add depth to the train. P.s. I never knew how hard aluminum is to work with.)

Capitalism & Mickey

How did Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping protest at the Disney Store work to critique of even “destroy” the commercialism and and the cultural meaning of Disney?

In the Lane reading, Rev. Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping use tactic such as “Spatathon” from the ‘Invasion Manual’ to engage audience via action and dialogue which forces the audience to participate taking the performance a real life.

Social Issue: Hazel and Lew (Final Edit)

We choose gentrification in Williamsburg, Brooklyn as our social issue. Willaimsburg was not the most desirable neighborhood since it used to be an industrial area thus attracting people who were looking for afford rent would. As the neighborhood started to become “renewed” and the  L train under construction, the neighborhood began to change. The new ferry has created an easier way to travel between Manhattan and Brooklyn, since the L train will be under major construction it provided relief and opportunity for people seeking an up and coming neighborhood. Change is great for the neighborhood and it will provide a better environment for the next generation to grow up, but there is a sense of community is removed.

We chose this as our source it highlighted how “urban renewal” has affected Williamsburg specifically. It gave examples of people who went through the rough years are now forced to move because they can no longer afford rent.

In this news article, it was a perspective of the person who lives in Williamsburg and the emotional statement of the sense of community is removed since neighbors are leaving. The new people coming in are taking over the neighborhood by storm of changing the shops and public spaces.

Social Issue: Hazel and Lew

We choose gentrification at Williamsburg, Brooklyn as our social issue. Willaimsburg was not the most desirable neighborhood since it used to be an indurstrial area and where people who couldn’t afford rent would flock to. As the neighborhood is being gentrified the L train along with the buses are not the only means of transportation. The new ferry has now made it easier for Brooklynites to travel to and from Manhattan to Brooklyn. Now the downside of gentrification is how it now forces those who made it a home are now being shuffled to find other placed that are affordable.
