de-fenceproject-1Wooden wildlife cut-outs were installed on some ugly scaffolding in Dumbo last week for the De-Fence Project, an “attempt to re-plant nature into the urban façade.” However, the evolution-themed art project that coincided with BKLYN Designs, was put up without permission. So earlier this week the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation tore the pro-nature project down, reminding people that they “have lots and lots of art events, but you just have to ask for permission,” before you try to spruce up their unsightly sidewalk sheds.
