Parked in Park Slope

Park Slope, Brooklyn
Photo by myself around 10th Street and 7th Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Park Slope, Brooklyn, is known for its historic townhouses.

The townhouses above have rusticated bases in brownstone and roman brick on the parlor floor. Many of townhouses have small front gardens and gas lamps.

Whoever lives in these is doing pretty well to have a nice house and a super-nice car.

Parking on the streets is relatively safe these days. Your car will most likely be there the next day.

Oh, I liked that area very much, it was so quiet there. The houses are beautiful. We spoke an owner and he told us it is very small inside.

Wonderful shot! But I'm afraid I can't agree with the term "super car"! It's just an old Alfa Romeu (you can get one for less than 5000€). How ever, it's great car if you want to improve your skills as an auto mechanic...

It's an alfa Romeo Duetto!

The only concern in Park Slope is getting your Mercedes stolen :)

It may not be new, but I love the colour and it looks great, lovely old Alfa!
