Neighborhood gas station
Acrylic/canvas 24x30’ 1998
Brooklyn has always been like a small city to its inhabitants. Its neighborhoods were like small towns or villages. Neighborhoods were generally self-sufficient, with shopping, entertainment, and restaurants conveniently located as was the gas station/ auto repair shop. Usually built on corners, these vanishing small stations were on now valuable real estate and, as would be expected, have been gradually replaced with apartment buildings or larger commercial buildings.
