Brooklyn, NY

“It has its own unique history and its own communities. In the beginning of Moby Dick, as Ishmael is leaving New York he remarks upon the ‘twin cities’ of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Brooklyn has always been the center of industrial labor in NYC and thus has historically hosted the working class, the artisans, the men whose hands are hard from use and sturdy matriarchs who have never heard of Saks on 5th. There are more real people here. It’s a bit quieter, and it’s still a little bit easier to make art here than in Manhattan.” — Yoke Lore
