Brooklyn Meat Market
Joe and Gloria Wicksman
There was a time when a part of Atlantic Avenue had a lovely drive and promenade. Perhaps it was near to this spot and perhaps it was on this spot itself. Now, Atlantic Avenue is devastated and when I began this painting plans for the evacuation of the meat market had begun.
“My parents used to own a small shop here and they sold liver. Now I own these trucks and it’s a big operation. Soon they’ll tear this place down.” Joe Wicksman
