Broken Angel

Broken Angel is this facisnating building in Brooklyn, built by Arthur Wood. He and his wife have lived in Broken Angel for thirty years, and the New York City Building department is trying to tear it down. It has been used as a backdrop for David Chappelle and Michel Gondry's concert film. The Woods are currently working with an architectural firm in NY (Parnass Digital Architecture) to bring it up to NYC's building code. They are taking help from anyone who is willing to contribute their skill, and donations by mail can be sent to:

Arthur Wood, 4 Downing street Brooklyn, New York 11238.

I think this is a really great pieace of architecture! Go to the site and look at the pictures. It is a piece of art. I hope to visit it one day. Lets help them keep it around.
