Ever seen a sports arena guarded by a giant Anaconda? In the Brooklyn borough of New York City, the neighborhoods of Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, Park Slope and Prospect Heights have new company in their vicinity – a giant cuddle-up Anaconda. Its bold presence has impregnated the air with fear, inhibition and much excitement. A major transformation of the neighborhoods is in process, which would be exponential once the Anaconda is awake.
A street view of Barclays Center – a multipurpose sports and entertainment arena – located at the confluence of Flatbush or Altantic Avenue, resembles a giant cuddled-up Anaconda, with contours of its skin fabricated by a latticework system of 12,000 uniquely sized, rust-colored, pre-weathered steel panels.

“Do you use the front room much,” I ask a friend the other night, over a glass of wine as our kids rumble away upstairs. Six of us are sitting by a huge hearth in his back room mellowing out as the heat makes its way into our bones. “Well, not much…in the summer we’re there a lot.”

This is how my grandmother used to talk. There were rooms in her house that, come winter, were practically off limits. As the sun and temperatures shifted, so did the way you lived inside the big homestead. This is far from the experience of my urban peers. In their sea of tract housing, one can barely notice all the subtle changes of the changing seasons.
