You Are Where

Somala Diby, Rachael Dottle, Jourdan Sayers

Through this project, we explore how western Canal Street obstructs the flow and organization of culture, goods, and people and renders the area transient, disorienting, and placeless. We argue that the design of this area's transportation infrastructure creates a geography-bending portal generating nearness between New Jersey and Brooklyn while erecting barriers between physically adjacent neighborhoods. Canal Street from the Hudson River to Avenue of the Americas.
A snapshot visualization of the 311 complaints on just four specific days in New York City, three of which are celebratory parade days. Despite parades not physically occurring in the study area of Canal Street, the influence of the day's events on complaint tolls is examined in relation to land use and value while also in comparison to a non-parade control day. Between Avenue of the Americas & Broadway.
