At first glance, this looks just like an old (but still pretty sweet) camper parked in the alley. As it turns out, it’s one of the many examples of how diverse and cool our neighbors are- it’s a sculpture that’s part of an upcoming art installation (UPDATE: a reader below sent us a link to a photo of the camper getting installed at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. So cool!).
A note left on the windshield of the Jeep to which the camper is attached reads:
This camper is part of a sculpture I’ll be installing at 7am tomorrow. If it’s in any way in your way before then, please call [phone number].
It’s pretty cool that 1) we have a camper art sculpture coming soon from a Trinidad resident, and 2) There’s no need to call the city to get parking enforcement on the case if this inconveniences you; here, we use common sense and respect. If there’s an issue, go talk your neighbor, who’s probably really laid back, and let him know. We’re the kind of neighborhood where neighbors respect each other and talk to each other.
On the other hand, this is a great example of how (if you get to know your neighbors and everyone’s cool with each other) you can park your camper/car/trailer for a little bit in the alley if you need to, and no one will care because it’s not a big deal and everyone needs to do something like that from time to time.
Learn from this, Northwest.
Also, it’d make a sweet place for an afternoon half-pint or 40 when the art installation is over with.
