From cherry blossoms to wisteria spring in NYC is allll about the florals. But when it comes to Montague Street Blooms, the blooming new floral installation in Brooklyn Heights, we promise you’ve never seen anything like it.
That’s because this new installation presented by the Montague Street Business Improvement District (Montague BID) is like something out of a dream!
Created by artists Piera Bonerba and Emanuale Simmonelli, the installation has turned 700-square-feet worth of Brooklyn Heights into a blooming field of flowers–and they stand 6 feet tall!
The brightly-colored flowers are handcrafted mostly with upcycled materials and found objects and make for a perfectly dreamy escape from the bustling streets of NYC.
“Montague Street Blooms embraces a spatial range of color, texture, shadows, and perspective,” said creator and artist Piera Bonerba. “It is intended to be looked at, dreamt over, and walked through, enticing the passerby with the opportunity to escape momentarily into a magical, if temporary, landscape to enjoy the public open space.”
So why not take some time to tiptoe through the tulips (especially when these kinds are allergy-free!!!).
The magical field of flowers will bloom on the Montague Street Open Streets (between Henry and Hicks Streets) on May 20 and 27 as well as every Saturday in June and July (except June 10). They’ll be on display from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
“Montague Street has welcomed so many new businesses over the past few years including L’Appartement 4F, Books are Magic…and Le Meraviglie that have attracted new people to the street. We hope that Montague Street Blooms gives New Yorkers and visitors to the city another reason to visit, shop, dine and explore the businesses here.” added Chura.
Montague Street is just one of the 300+ streets participating in this year’s “Open Streets” program.
Roads spanning across all five boroughs to both pedestrians and cyclists close down to all car-traffic, giving communities the space and programming they need to come together and enjoy the great outdoors.
