I came across this lonely trailer parked on the corner of Bogart and Boerum Streets, when running this morning in the streets of Bushwick. Looking at it closely, I recognized the signs of greenery, which made me immediately feel uneasy. In our home sweet industrial Bushwick, greenery is rather unusual. After I checked with my eyes again, I recognized that I am seeing A Mobile Public Park, a lovely project by artist Kim Holleman. The sign was saying that I could come in and enjoy the park in the urban setting.  Hesitantly, I entered the trailer, and took 2 deep breaths. I’m not going to lie:  all the oxygen made me feel dizzy, and deprived me of my usual cranky Bushwick balance. In panic, ran back home.
