Street Views: A Super Stoop
I'm always cheered every year to see Michael Quinn's planted creations tiered on the steps of his Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn stoop. The selection of plants is appealing, but the vessels that hold them deserve extra attention, exceptional for their variety and scale. Note some surprises: a jungle faced container hidden behind the gigantic leaves of an aloe plant and a Tonka Toys dump truck that's hauling a load of sprouting dirt.
