Photo by myself in Park Slope, Brooklyn, looking down 'the slope'.
A photo from mid-morning yesterday, while I was trudging to the subway. We'd had a few hours of slushy snowfall.
Park Slope is named for its location near Prospect Park, a large public park designed by Fredrick Law Olmstead. There is also a gradual, large hill. Hence 'Park Slope'.
The streets are lined with trees, brownstones and the occasional new apartment building. Many of my neighbors are just like me, that is, former residents of the Upper West Side in Manhattan, which looks very similar.
Fortunately the weather people were not entirely accurate, as usual! Yesterday we got a lot of wet snow that turned into cold mush on the streets, but not nearly the 16 inches forecasted. At most, some neighborhoods had up to nine inches of snow.
