This block-long artwork brightens the southward view of a concrete plant operated by Quadrozzi Enterprises, which helped sponsor the mural, and the elevated station at Smith and 9th. The pineapple has plenty of company, but at least one local edible is missing from the picture: The mulberry, represented by the trees at the far left of the first, wide-angle photo. In early summer, the branches were filled with fat purple berries, though you wouldn't want to make a meal of them. The grayish-blue background, in the final photo, is the water of the Gowanus Canal.
