Hello Erik,

As a Brooklyn artist, I write you today to share Brooklyn’s greatest public artwork.

Why it is unknown is a mystery.  Nobody knows it exists.

The Tower of the Empire State Building bisects the Arch in Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza.

Landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted and architect Calvert Vaux created the framework for this continuing work-in-progress as the Civil War ended, 25 years before the Arch, 65 years before the Tower, 105 years before the Mirador, and 145 years before I stumbled across it.

In starting the “Grand Army Plaza” group here at Brooklyn Arts Project, I hope to share ideas on how to raise public awareness to protect and promote this View as an “historic visual corridor.”  Building Six of Atlantic Yards threatens to eclipse the view. 

Please forward the links to friends, artists, architects, bloggers, politicos, media and civilians. 

Your friend, Richard

Hi Erik.

Thank you very much.

All of your works are so brilliant, that I can't choose a favorite.

Very talented.
