A Panoramic View Of The Foreclosure Crisis In NYC

Artist Damon Rich has used the Panorama of the City of New York, created for the 1964 World’s Fair, to map foreclosures’ impact on the city in 2008. “Each plastic triangle represents a block where there have been three or more home foreclosures. Visitors on the balcony walkway that surrounds the Panorama, at the Queens Museum of Art in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, can see in a single glance precisely where subprime lenders wreaked the most havoc.”
