Project #3

Looking for a place to go during your free time ?or maybe places to explore the beauty of the city? Well I’ve got a recommendation of locations to pass by or explore. These locations are all around city college of technology  and I believe these places will catch your interest. It’ll  not only give you something to do on you free time from the busy life style but will also help you see another perspective of the beautiful scenery the city provides us with.

Beauty; it can make a place more interesting and appealing to a person. that is why I chose my five locations. These locations have beauty, they grab the viewers attention. It all depends on how you approach beauty of course. Depending on the date and time  it can make a difference, I prefer that its best to visit these locations at the end of October or  beginning of November, and the time would be best at 2:30pm-5:30pm. This is a preferred date and time because the tree leaves set the best mood and make the streets look beautiful. Not only do the trees make the streets beautiful but also the structure of the buildings.  These locations are a good way to enjoy the time by yourself, with friends, or family.

In order to experience these locations follow these directions. Set the starting point at New York City College of technology and make your way to  Tillary St, Brooklyn, NY, this would be the first location. At this  location, while looking around you might notice a few buildings, these buildings will catch your attention because of their structure. Sometimes the structure of a building can have meaning to it. For example the location of a building or the time period can be guessed by a buildings structure or how long it’s been there. Any way after this location, head west on Tillary St toward Adams St and Turn right onto Cadman Plaza, making your way into Cadman Plaza W, this is the second location. At this location you will start to see a lot beautiful trees and at this time of year it’s the most beautiful and eye catching. Next head north on Cadman Plaza W toward Clark and turn left onto 21 Clark St, this location is the third location. At this location you should see a hotel building. The structure of this building would make you want to take photos of it. Start by looking from the bottom of the building and making your way up you would see really beautiful designes on it. Just by looking at this building you can get an idea that this building is old becasue of the artwork on it. Next head east on Clark St toward Hicks St, turn left onto Hicks St and then turn left onto Orange St. At this location if you look down the street you would see a lot of trees. At the preferred date october or november this location is filled with Autumn colors because of the leaves. After that head west on Orange St toward Willow St and turn right onto Columbia Heights, this is the last location. This final location is called the fruit street sitting area, it has a great view of the city skyline and the bridge. At anytime time it looks beautiful, However the best time would be at night when the lights are flashing so bright along with the night sky

This concludes the journey, hopefully it’ll be a worthwhile for you and anyone with you.

project #3 (locations)

The reason I’ve chosen the locations below and pined on the map was because they were interesting in their own way. As I was walking around the city tech community, I crossed by these places and found them to be beautiful and peaceful. The colors of the leaves and the structure of the building was what stood out the most to me especially the fruit street sitting area because it had a beautiful view of the skyline, the park and the street itself.

“City Limits” Summary

“City Limits” is the opening chapter from the book The Colossus of New York by Colson Whitehead. The author started this chapter with these three bold and capitalized words “I’M HERE BECAUSE”  as soon as I read these words my attention was captivated into this chapter. I felt that this chapter was related to everyone living in New York or anywhere else, because it talked about how the streets we have always been living in, that we walked back and forth in, and maybe just visiting holds every memory that we had. In this chapter, it talked about “My Own City”; everyone see’s New York differently, in their own way so they have their “own city”. Overall, this chapter was about how this city is changing everyday without us realizing it. The store’s that we visit or walk by everyday and the people that are there too are going or disappearing with out us knowing  it.

Urban Artifacts: Phase #4

Project # 1: Urban Artifacts was a fun experience for me. I’ve enjoyed every second of it, even though once in a while it was a little confusing. I liked this project because it helped me grow and learn things I didn’t know about art. For example, I learned what the words ambiguous, stable, figure, ground, unity and economy meant and how they are used in art. I believe that everything I learned so far in this project will help with the next project. If I can change anything about this project I would make the sketching process a little longer, that way I can brainstorm better ways to use the three artifacts I found so it can make the final work even better. Overall, everything about this project was  fun and a new experience.

 

Incredulous

Adjective :

(of a person or their manner): unwilling or unable to believe something.

I found this word while reading “City Limits”. When I passed by this word I thought it meant shocking or surprising, so when I searched it up it ended up meaning similar to what I thought.
