Gothic Maxwell Place

[Continuing the original Hoboken411 photo series: Hoboken Digital Art…]

Maxwell Place when the world ends…

Was tooling around with different concepts – and thought “what would Hoboken look like if the world was about to end?” (as the Mayans seem to predict)…

Well – here’s my vision of what Maxwell Place would look like when global doom is upon us. Kind of cool if you ask me (in art – not real life, thank you very much!) However, it does look a bit like a penitentiary when depicted in this manner.

I always thought it looked like a prison minus the lookout tower. If the Feds decide to prosecute the Bailout cronies, they can store them here. Pump them full of starbucks and let them write their memoirs while doing community service training service dogs at Maxwell Park.

Not so much penitentiary but sanitarium. As in…

Nicely executed.
Maxwell unfortunately has an ugly instituational look to it anyway. So you just gave it some attitude which is sadly needed. Sorry for the property owner residents. Building 1 was much nicer then building 2 which looks like a colossal design mess. Perhaps an architect that did not do well with commerical designs and lent their hand to messing up what could have been an awesome property site.
