about

HELL GATE WATERWAY

i wanted to share a collection of songs inspired by the hell gate waterway, located in the east river between queens and randall's island. water currents from the long island sound, harlem river strait, and the upper bay of new york harbor converge here, creating an incredibly unpredictable and complicated web of water. the hell gate bridge looms above, supported by stone castle spires, atop which a handful of graffiti tags mark what appears to be an impossible climb. the hell gate bridge currently services the amtrak long-distance railroad, and the only access point to these towers is via these train tracks about a mile and a half from the bridge while the tracks are on ground level in astoria, queens. to me, the hell gate symbolizes the sense of adventure in a city losing its edge- an unhinged order order the chaos below. this album reflects my time in new york city after the events of the very much suburban 'heavy heart'.
