The Sky Above Park Slope, Brooklyn

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

A gorgeous sunset in the neighborhood turned the sky a shade of magenta.

The brick walk-up buildings are typical of this neighborhood. Each building has a tiny yard in front and a larger yard in back. Very few buildings have driveways.

Those who watched the US Open over the weekend know that New York had tons of rain. We had a tiny tornado (!) on Saturday, which turned the sky a dark grey and brought down sheets of rain. Tornados are not typical in our area.

Mark, Rupert and I were in Prospect Park at the time and we managed to run home before the rain came down, thank goodness.

Happy Monday, everyone!

Beautiful sky! Great photo!

I just recently stumbled across your blog, and have enjoyed looking back through and reading up on the various New York sights you've captured. My husband and I plan to visit New York (for the first time) at the beginning of October-- are there any restaurants you could suggest in the Manhatten or Brooklyn areas? We'll be on a budget, so we're looking for not-so-pricey places, but maybe that still have a neat atmosphere.
