The Word On The Street: Doric

A Contradiction of Column Nomenclature nys

As taken on Park Place yesterday May 23rd, 2015. Those of you, gentle readers, who are familiar with Greek architecture will understand why I find this amusing. For those who do not: I can only hope there is another apartment building somewhere called the “Corinthian” sporting Ionic columns. As far as “capitals” go, I prefer Carolingian myself.

Please do read this post authored by my colleague (and all-around great guy) Flatbush Gardener. Here’s a teaser:

For the past several years, under the guise of its “Campaign for the Next Century,” the Brooklyn Botanic Garden has been in a development frenzy – the Edibles/Kitchen Garden, The Visitor Center, the Native Flora Garden Expansion, the planned overhaul of the Children’s Corner at Flatbush and Parkside. At the same time, it has been gradually eroding its scientific and educational missions.

BBG claims these benefits for its “Campaign”:

… these enhancements will help the Garden … [foster] a love and understanding of plants and the natural world and inspiring the next generation of environmental stewards.
– “Vision,” Campaign for the Next Century, Brooklyn Botanic Garden [Emphasis added]What relevant understanding of “plants and the natural world” is possible without science? What inspiration can be found when science is valued less than a plot of Lilacs?

Excellent question.

It should be noted there was another work directly to the left of this one. It was graced with an admonition and read as follows:

NOTICE TO PUBLIC
PLEASE DO NOT CONCLUDE AN OPINION ON THE MURALS HEREUNDER,
UNTIL YOU HAVE OBSERVED ALL THE MURALS IN “MOM’S LIVING ROOM” DOWNSTAIRS IN THE THEATER.

Sadly this store front is shuttered. I really would have liked to see more!
