Photo by myself in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
Colored lights decorated a front lawn in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Santa seems to have left his boots.
Some of the front lawns in Brooklyn are very tiny or non-existant, with concrete slabs and little patches of grass. Occasionally, there is a tree.
Many brownstones don't have driveways or garages, so there isn't a place to keep garbage cans (!). A paved front yard means less upkeep and a place to keep trash cans off the sidewalk during the week.
We drove into the city briefly to try out my xmas present, a new camera lens! Hip hip, hooray! It is a fantastic zoom lens that I have to get used to.
I wish everyone a safe and lovely holiday.
