Boerum Hill's Babbling Buckets
Last March, we told you about a large scale sailboat model in the front yard of a large, red brick townhouse on Dean Street, between Smith and Nevins Street. The same house, we noticed had recently installed fountain constructed of large white plastic buckets (five gallons?).
The installation is sizable; at least five feet high and six feet in diameter. Its round pyramid shape is very well proportioned to the large brick yard. As you approach it, the sound of water trickling into a tub increases in volume to when you are in front of it, that is the dominant sound you hear on that Brooklyn block.
We love it and can't wait to see the next installation.
