My friend Bob Guskind passed away unexpectedly last month. A couple of weeks later I went to his funeral at the chapel at Greenwood Cemetery. It was a small, moving service-- his friends spoke about his work, his enormous talents, and his personal struggles. Afterwards I walked up to the top of the tallest hill at Greenwood, near the Olympia statue, and spent a few minutes thinking about Bob and looking down over Brooklyn, towards the bay. On the way out, I snapped this shot of the slightly run-down greenhouse across the street from the cemetery gates-- just the sort of place Bob would have loved, and would have wanted to see protected from the creeping development on the surrounding streets of Sunset Park.
