Dumpster Home

Gregory Kloehn speaks to a reporter outside his "dumpster home".

Dumpster Living


In the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, artist Gregory Kloehn (originally from California) lives in a dumpster. He purchased it new and retrofitted it to be his dwelling when he comes to New York City. It's loaded with steel appliances, an outside shower, a barbecue, a toilet and a padded area where he can lie down.
