• PARK RANGER
In a notch in a three-story-tall cliff in Boston's Franklin Park, Brandon Nastanski erected his officially unapproved hermit hut. Dubbed the Unofficial Franklin Park Research Outpost, it was a sort of ramshackle clubhouse built from sticks and junk the Jamaica Plain artist had scavenged from the park — but it was also a haunted witch shack, a voodoo shrine, and a meditative homage to Thoreau's Walden cabin. In other words, the kind of surprise you might happen upon or hear about and never find — a brand new legend.
