When we walk to BH from our apartment, we cross a plaza and park that run from Borough Hall (which I should have gotten a picture of... Will remedy that soon - it's a wonderful old building) to the Brooklyn Bridge. A small winter Farmer's Market inhabits this plaza three days a week. I'm told that it is significantly bigger in the warm weather. The top of the Manhattan Bridge can be seen in the background.
|The southern tip of Manhattan, which is the Financial District and The Seaport|
|A small playground tucked in among the trees and grand homes.|
|It's hard to really see, but the entire first floor of this home is a solarium.|
I was absolutely blown away when I discovered these flowers. It had been seventeen degrees the morning before! Yes, they are real! They look a bit like a large primrose. Does anyone know what they are?
On the walk home, we passed several big trucks with huge cables and equipment spilling out, then an open tent with food and several large coffee urns. Sensing a film shoot nearby, Zoe and I wandered in the direction of the activity.
Just seconds after I shot this last picture, Sarah Jessica Parker walked past me and into the blue tent to my left! She's taller than I thought...
Finally, a couple of pictures of some of the wonderful architecture we passed on the way home. I am completely taken with the many spectacular homes - and windows and doors. I fear you'll be seeing many of them in the future.
|Grace Alley is a tiny dead-end street lined with old carriage houses that have become homes.|
|Another amazing carriage house|
|And it's grand next door neighbor.|
All these streets are tree-lined, so getting pictures without either branches or shadows is nearly impossible.
