Trash into Treasure: A Vision for an East Flatbush Dumping Ground

A large, faded sign hangs on the graffiti-laden facade of Qualimax Car Wash in East Flatbush advertising its grand opening specials. Its one of the many unkempt remnants of a business that long closed its doors, along with dozens of totaled cars and trash piled high in the unoccupied building.
