I am trapped on Planet Toronot . . .
Taking in the view . . .
Waiting for my ship to come in . . .
The Brooklyn sunset seen from the roof of my girlfriend’s old place in Fort Greene.

Taken Fall, 2008
As the Heygate Estate empties out – it is over fifty percent empty now and the first demolitions are scheduled to begin after the summer, what is lees and less clear is what will happen once the estate is demolished. The credit crunch has made the future of the Elephant and Castle regeneration uncertain. At the moment, it looks as if the estate could be pulled down and a vast moribund construction site be left in it’s place. For years.
At least it would slow down the gentrification of the Elephant.
