By Way of Canarsie


After years of neglect by the City of New York and the devastation of Hurricane Sandy – the coastal community of Canarsie, Brooklyn wants more. Using a variety of formats, this experimental series of vignettes explores Canarsie’s unique relationship to the water through recreation, resiliency, and the community’s imagination for the future.
