69 Meters
From May 14 though mid June, 2009, all the parking-meter poles along Brooklyn Heights' main street are covered in knitted cozies as part of a temporary public-art installation. Commissioned by the Montague Street Business Improvement District, '69 Meters' is a collaboration between Magda Sayeg – the founder of Knitta Please, the guerilla knitting collective – and nearly 50 volunteer knitters. Artworks were created by dozens of Brooklyn residents and were also contributed by knitters as far away as San Francisco, Paris, and Santiago, Chile. All of the artists are women.
