East River Biological Field Station, 2004
Aluminum, wood
12’8” x 8’ x 45’7”

This aluminum clad structure, perched on a flat bed truck overlooking the river and the Manhattan skyline, functions as a working laboratory for the observation and identification of wildlife in and around the East River. Biology students from Long Island City High School will man the station and maintain records on weather and water conditions, tides, and their observations of the environment.
