  • As we twist and turn through the streets we eventually get onto 4th Avenue. For three years we lived right at the end of 4th Avenue in the Clock Tower. You can see the tower from everywhere in Brooklyn - it’s the tallest building. Only you cant from here because it’s so effing far away. I think I join 4th avenue around 112th street. When I realize that I know exactly where 1st street is and it’s still a way to go to the clock tower. I have a mini ‘oh shit’ realization. This avenue is really fucking long. This mile seems to have a little bit of swearing in it but mostly a reality check so I think it’s fitting that it belongs to the wonderful Cindy Gallop.
