Plaza Perch with bench and roof view, showcases how the Historic Moore Street Market’s enamel signage is in consort with the artwork’s trellis and in doing so reinforces that the new plaza with it’s artwork is a sign of continuing community vitality. There is a play of accents with the color palettes with the natural light and steel as the plaza pavers.

Here Plaza Perch serves as event and stage for a summer salsa night. Drummers and trumpets use the artwork as a stage while onlookers gather all around the artwork and salsa dancers congregate in the front of the perch. The artwork and plaza respond to the vibrancy of the city as an event space.

Plaza Perch, Frontal view with a “percher,” a visitor from the neighborhood taking advantage of the view of the paved plaza. To the left is the Market ( La Marqueta) and to the right is the street. A landscaped area is behind the artwork. A public housing complex (The Bushwick Houses) is directly across the street from the artwork. At different times of the day, the colored trellis casts a variety of patterns and offers shade.
