clui spring newsletter

[Part of the James River ghost fleet, one of the three remaining floating stockpiles in the National Defense Reserve Fleet, via wikipedia]

CLUI’s spring Lay of the Land surveys the American landscape of ship breaking (which is largely fed by the Congressionally-mandated dismantling of the ghost fleets), develops a linkage between Kodak Park (“said to be the largest industrial complex in the northeast”) and Kodachrome Park (which “remains one of the few, if not the only, State Parks named after a trademarked product”), and catalogs “the geometric terrain of helipads” in Los Angeles, among other (terrific) things.
