From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part II: Origami at McGolrick Park?

Hi Miss Heather!

I was wondering if you have seen or know anything about this lovely origami crane installation in our hood @ McGolrick? My roommate and I have been admiring them for a couple weeks and we’re so curious who’s behind it!

If I had to hazard a guess I’d say that this is either the handiwork of NBPacArt or students at P.S. 110 (which is located across the street) If anyone reading this has the 411 about this rather nifty piece of public art please share via comments or email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Thanks!
