Snowed Under, In Brooklyn

Blizzard, Brooklyn
Photo by myself in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Somewhere under all that snow is someone's car. Strong winds made the snow drifts very high.

Park Slope has some nice side streets lined with older brownstones, like the ones above. Along the avenues, there are restaurants and little stores. Parking spaces are generally very difficult to find.

Mark, Rupert and I spent most of the day Monday holed up indoors, cooking. Rupert went out for a bit in the afternoon, only to tear down the sidewalk, turn around and tear back inside. Too cold for a little dog!

Blizzard, Brooklyn
Seventh Avenue is a popular hang out in Park Slope. As in Manhattan, most people live on the side streets, leaving the avenues for dining, shopping and services.

I love the old brownstone & this looks like a beautiful place to live too.

I like how the edge of the exposed car..looks like a nail clipping, to tie in with the sign.
