Chalking the sidewalks of Carrol Gardens

on this spot: hills and forests
proud creator of “this was once a hill”


I liked when there’s wetlands 400 years ago and then there’s a totally different place and you have to draw the differences. –Camilo

I liked when we got to trace the path from where you walked. –Max

overflowing with life


I liked how we got to tell people that were walking on the sidewalk what type of landform it was 400 years ago. I liked their expressions. –Xavier


I really liked when it was like we were in a village and we just automatically walked into wetland. I thought it was really fun because we went two or three blocks down and the whole entire space just totally was different, the land. It felt like we were on a different piece of land. It reminded me of how things are upstate. –Avrie


I think it’s really sad because there used to be a lot of green 400 years ago and now there’s barely any. –Clementine

how did we know what was here? We used a historical map!

I liked when we got to look at the maps and then draw with chalk what it said. –carma

I kind of liked looking on the map and finding out that we had just gone from forest and hills to a beautiful marsh. But it was really just sidewalks. –Lola
