Streets: ESPO – Love Letters Brooklyn to be demolished

Espo Love Letter to Brooklyn

Back in 2011, we were in Brooklyn as street artist Steve Powers ESPO was painting his monumental ‘LOVE LETTERS BROOKLYN’ (covered here) on the facade of the Macy’s parking garage.

As an ode to the borough of Brooklyn and its 99cents stores below, ESPO adorned the building with black and white sentences like ‘Euphoria is you for Me’, ‘Turn to Me, I see Eternity’,

Macy’s restructuring plan to close 36 stores in the United States this year is also affecting one of the most treasured mural in the local community. In a recent Instagram post, Powers confirmed the closing of the garage, and thanked fellow artist Dave Chino, mural painters Colossal Media, Macy’s, and Brooklyn “for making [him] the man [he is] today.”

Developpers will transform the parking into a residential high-rise with construction planning to start next spring.
