'Before I Die' -- Express Your Dreams In Downtown Brooklyn

Surrounding the construction site for Shake Shack in Downtown Brooklyn (409 Fulton Street), artist / TED fellow Candy Chang has created the public participation installation "Before I Die." Locals have been writing up their bucket lists on the giant chalkboard. Here are a few:

Before I die I want to . . .
See my mom happy.
Pay my student loan.
Find balance.
Marry Andrea.
Be a millionaire.

Be saved.
Love more.
Trust more.
Make the banks give back.
Go back to Yosemite.
Get paid.
Make my dream a reality.
Make Christian love me.

There's more about this project on Candy Chang's blog.
