BX-01: "Exploded Fortress of Solitude" by Lydia Xynogala

“First Stop South Bronx. These buildings do bear an amazing resemblance to the buttes of Utah. And it is wonderful how things have sped up. When the condemned structures are dynamited, I can see in a few minutes the erosion that in nature would take countless eons. The sight is indeed awe-inspiring.” -Mike Kelley

Approaching the long narrow strait of the South Bronx, a solitary fortress emerges in the horizon.

Attracting visitors from Manhattan or from the nearby Randall’s Island Art Fair, passing boats in the waters of Bronx Kill dock momentarily to admire the magnificent view. In Port Morris, the resident artist community enjoys this new dramatic scenery. There it is, the large printing facility of the New York Post, where it once constructed stories, myths, and other facts. Years of misinformation have formed thick layers over the surface of actual events.

12,000 tons of waste were routed to the South Bronx at a rate of 2-3 trucks per minute, to be dispersed in the numerous recycling facilities nearby. Construction debris, concrete, dirt, brick, rocks, asphalt. One day they started to slowly pile up on top of the Post. Soon, other local waste followed. Nearby oil refineries joined in and even the brewery contributed. The press stopped printing. Fermentation and molding ensued. This fortress is now in a state of erosion. Crushed slabs, sand and stone, and even demolished monuments.

Developers’ plans for the waterfront and a renaming of the area as the Piano District are scrapped. The nearby film studio is shooting new Westerns. As floods increase, the mount becomes a refuge. While everyone is lamenting the loss of the Village Voice, this new composite taking over the Post is sparking joy throughout the city.
