DEPT. OF CLARIFICATION: EARL VERSUS THE OYSTERS
By SAMANTHA HENIG
"...The oyster reefs, as imagined by Kate Orff, a landscape architect, would ease the impact of storms and filter pollution in the water. (Not addressed: who or what will filter out horrifying creatures in our tap water.) Orff’s fantastical future also includes a FLUPSY (for “flowing upweller system”) parade of oyster-filled boats along the Gowanus (which she bills as a cultural perk) and the Shuck Shack, where an imagined menu offers oyster po’ boys for seven dollars and Sixpoint Sweet Action for five, leading one to think that either a booming oyster future is within immediate reach or that Orff’s idealism extends to curbing inflation."
