Date: Saturday, January 24th
Location: UnionDocs (322 Union Ave, W'burg)
To kick off 2009, UnionDocs presents a photographic exploration of Brooklyn's industrial neighborhoods, abandoned airports, deserted train stations and empty powerhouses. Abandoned Brooklyn documents a transitional moment in Brooklyn’s history, as it moves from its industrial past towards a future that seems to be dominated by luxury apartment buildings and chain stores. This exhibit is curated by the documentary collaborative UnionDocs and kicks off a new season of their Documentary Bodega screening series. As part of the opening night event, there will also be a screening of the film Covered Tracks - a short documentary about an abandoned homeless city underneath Manhattan.
