Meryl Meisler first stepped off the subway at the intersection of Myrtle and Wyckoff Avenues in December of 1981. She was about to start a full-time job as a public school art teacher in the neighborhood that hadn’t recovered from the riots four years earlier. Instead of letting devastating scenery get her down, she started a photo project in which she took photos of the people and places that celebrated the spirit of Bushwick. For decades, she kept her photos to herself, but in 2007, she started showing them in galleries, eventually pairing these photos with pictures of the disco era snapshots she had from 1970’s disco clubs. She tells us about her book, A Tale of Two Cities: Disco Era Bushwick and we get a glimpse of the Brooklyn she saw in 1981.
