Nathan Kensinger + Fresh Kills

Saturday, November 14, 2009

I first heard from trash photographer Nathan Kensinger this summer when we discovered a mutual love for abandoned marine transfer stations. Turns out our friends at Fresh Kills Park saw that post and invited Kensinger to photograph the infamous former landfill and capture its refound wild beauty.

Fancy that, this blog connecting trashies.

Songs about packaging

Friday, August 28, 2009

Randy Ludacer is a Staten Islander who writes songs about packaging. From 12 noon to 2pm on Saturday, September 26th, you can hear him perform these songs at the Freshkills Park site. The event is free and everyone who attends will get a free CD. Click here for more details. Though out of date, this is my favorite of the photos on Ludacer’s website. Kind of makes you want to head to Staten Island, doesn’t it?

If you prefer bird calls to obscure songs written by people, the very next day Freshkills hosts a birding tour led by local naturalists. More info here.
