Many of them have a tiny little area beside the stoop for a garden and they plant flowers and vegetables and many people were out on the stoops cleaning up after the storm and visiting with their neighbors on Saturday morning. We also saw several young fathers pushing strollers or holding the hands of preschoolers.
We found this tribute to Brooklyn fireman on the sidewalk among the resturants and apartments.
We saw many veterinary clinics. One guide told us many New Yorkers live alone and are very attached to their pets. This one is just for cats.
It is easy to see why New Yorkers don't cook. There are all kinds of restaurants, carts and deli's everywhere. The smell of food on the street is wonderful and tempting.
The building with the gold top is One Hanson Place, the most expensive apartment building in Brooklyn, with one apartment available now for $8.4 million. Google it. They have a beautiful web site.
There are beautiful murals everywhere...and some not so beautiful, but still just as interesting.
As we neared the park, we found the Green Market, open every Saturday with baked goods and farm fresh vegetables. We found something to drink!
