Jonah Levy and Veronica Dougherty will be contributing interactive projects to The Case of the Curious Pedestrian. Here are brief descriptions of both projects, which will repeat throughout the day:
Myrtle Avenue, a notorious, stupendous and mysterious strip of famed “Brook-land” has a vast hidden history, of which many of it’s residents are unaware. From the arctic expeditions of Charles Pratt that earned him his fortune in black gold to the creative gold of Christopher George Latore Wallace (AKA Biggie Smalls), let Jonah Levy tell you about the real Moitel Avenue. These free half hour-long tours will start at the corner of Hall St & Myrtle Ave, at 1, 2, 3, and 4 pm. Look for the man holding a lightsabre.
In 1982, Johnny X moved to Brooklyn. In 1987, he disappeared. Though no one knows exactly what happened, there are clues to Johnny’s fate still present everywhere on Myrtle Avenue. Part scavenger hunt and part interactive detective story, Veronica Dougherty’s The Story of Johnny X involves participants in an examination of strange characters, seemingly mundane objects, and the many ways in which someone can disappear in a city. Briefings will commence at 1:30, 2:30, and 3:30pm, on the corner of Hall & Myrtle, where participants will receive a series of clues to solve this mystery.
