David Bowie rides the subway, where hopefully there weren’t too many service ch-ch-ch-changes.

We somehow woke up in a world today in which David Bowie no longer exists and that just doesn’t seem like it should be allowed. Bowie’s music, fashion, culture, movies and general life force was about as important an influence on Brooklyn style today as the invention of beer or headphones.

Dumbo in 2002 of course was nothing like the ritzy neighborhood it is today, but that was Bowie for you: always ahead of the trends.
