One Night of Fire

This falls a bit outside of our typical coverage sphere, but this weekend the very mysterious and enchanting "One Night of Fire" beckoned and StreetFilms produced this video essay of the gathering. I can frankly say I have never been in a subway car jammed with so many energetic people or had so much fun walking across the Brooklyn Bridge with thousands of people. It was a beautiful night.

Anytime people gather in public spaces it is a healthy sign of vitality for a city. In a related matter, this summer The Open Planning Project is sending a team to Burning Man to construct a full scale replica of Astor Place in Manhattan. But our version will include public seating, art, expanded sidewalks, greenery and many other amenities we'd like to see spring up to make the asphalt expanse there become more of a public plaza.

    Good Glory - Burning Man is such a f'n stupid event. And that's so stupid that so much money and effort would be wasted on impressing nobody. A replica of Astor Place, except it's like the 80s and you can still do Blow on a park bench.
