"Brooklyn: 329 Pacific Street, 1942" incorporates the iconic Gran Fury image from the ACT UP "Read My Lips" campaign. The title address (denoted by the nautical star) is of a gay brothel that served the Brooklyn Navy Yards in the early 1940s and became the center of a scandal involving a US senator.
