Today is my last day being 34… It was all about pregnancy and baby… But the happiest year of my life :) Walked by the Manhattan Bridge from Washington street — one of my favorite spots — thinking about what the new age/year will bring me… More happiness, I’m sure! :)

Found Art: Mr. Walt Whitman Sculpture

This weekend, I was out everyday to explore DUMBO Arts Festival 2011 — I took few photos so I’ll be sharing them this week… but today, I found the Mr. Walt Whitman sculpture at the Washington Street lawn area (my friends saw him, I hadn’t seen him yet) so took a quick shot.

‘Walt Whitman’ is a life size sculpture in papier-mâché and florescent paint, commemorating this local icon of American culture whose voice celebrates modern American identity and paved the way for today’s artists. Whitman was editor of the Brooklyn Eagle from 1846 to 1848 and the first edition of Leaves of Grass was published on Old Fulton Street by brothers James and Andrew Rome.
