Walking through Clinton Hill the other day in the full sun and the glint of metal caught my eye. I took a picture of this balcony (on Washington Avenue?) thinking these might be some cool metal planters someone had on their terrace. It wasn't until I got home and enlarged the picture that I realized what these were - check out the close-up after the jump!
These are kegs that have had the tops/bottoms opened up. I have no idea how they did this (torches? big can opener?) but they seem to make great planters. I don't know many people who have a stack of these lying around, and they can't be cheap - but it was a fun surprise to realize what these actually were - and the design has handles, so they could potentially be moved around.
