For the best experience we recommend viewing this video horizontally and listening with headphones.

Lincoln Square draws memories of Maifest, of bubbles in the fountain, of outdoor dining while shoppers stroll by. This piece is about all those things, but it also acknowledges that the neighborhood is overwhelmingly white, and that within the Western Brown Line stop there is a monument to closed borders and the dismantling of boundaries–a piece of the Berlin wall.
