Union Street is one-way, and we’re on the first block, so the view can be easy to miss. But if you walk out the store and look right, this is the silhouette you’ll see: giant gantry cranes in the active shipping port at the end of the block. This whole area used to be dotted with ship-building docks and hard-drinking longshoremen. Now it’s increasingly becoming gentrified and diversified (lobster roll on your way to the Tesla dealership, anyone?). But these cranes stand as a reminder of the neighborhood’s gritty working-class past.
And they look cool at sunset. So we contacted Josh Minnich to illustrate it for us. And even though it takes some explaining and not everyone’s going to get it, we dig it, and hope you do too.
These shirts are printed on super soft, 100% ring-spun cotton t-shirt comes with a women’s specific cut featuring a slim, feminine fit with a crew neck and long torso. Each is screen printed in Brooklyn and comes with a Union Garage size label screened into the back of the neck-eliminating that scratchy tag. See size chart for dimensions and size equivalents.
