Retail Action Project… I’m picking back up on things I find interesting in NYC. This organization is one:
The Retail Action Project (RAP) is an organization of retail workers dedicated to improving opportunities and workplace standards in the retail industry. We are a growing network of retail workers who work together to win living wages, benefits and respect in all retail stores
Shout out to Times Up! Direct Action Environmental Organization! One of the best things in New York!
i want to go see this.
Jimmy Bumble and Leonard White, Brooklyn Griffin, 2011 (via nytimes)
“Perched high above an industrial stretch of East Williamsburg, a menacing robot nine feet high and seven feet wide surveys the street below, watching cars steal past graffitied factory buildings as if they were prey. Its fierce head sways and dips when a wooden rudder protruding from the back of its neck catches the breeze. This is the Brooklyn Griffin. It almost never was. An earlier edition was destroyed on orders from an unsympathetic building manager.”
