Brooklyn: Among the Ruins

From swasserman.

Brooklyn born and bred Paul Kronenberg is a 60 year-old subway buff who built a life-size replica of a 1930s motorman’s subway cab in his tiny bedroom in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.

Paul, a former math tutor and delivery truck driver, describes himself as a classic underachiever. But Paul has his own worldview that is reflected in his apartment and in his relationship with the city.

Paul takes the film maker on a journey around New York City to note down, as Franz Kafka once wrote, “what he sees among the ruins.”
