Crown Heights Planter

September 1, 2012

If you’re like me, you don’t spend a lot of time thinking about urban bowl planters—but you know brilliant when you see it. I was recently in Crown Heights, around Utica Avenue. Some wizard had discovered that, instead of buying a decorative planter (compare left), you can make your own by turning an old tire inside-out, scalloping the edges, and painting it “terracotta.”


Evidently not much of a green thumb, though.
