One last block party at the Broken Angel – a Brooklyn landmark, an artwork, a home.

On Friday March 15, 2013, friends and neighbors helped plan one last Block Party at 4 Downing Street and an after-party to raise funds to help artist Arthur Wood, 81, find a new home.  He is being foreclosed on after almost 30 years in his home and his work of art, the Broken Angel, a Brooklyn landmark.  The community came out to show their support and celebrate art.

See more about Arthur’s story in this New York Times article: http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/03/13/after-art-house-eviction-time-for-a-block-party-in-clinton-hill/?smid=tw-share
